I have three children that all attend Andrews Elementary. Last year they tore down paws palace. I understand the issues they were having with after attending a PTO meeting. I also felt extremely guilty as a parent considering there are over 500 students at Andrews and I was one of ten at the PTO meeting. In discussing the playground I was informed that the money left over from the renovation at Andrews was approved for the board to install fiber optics through out Three Rivers School district. I don't understand how the board can find a way to provide some of those funds to Andrews to at least help with the cost of some equipment. The technology I understand, but as a mother I think that my childrens play and recess times are an important part to their development. Anyone with me on this?

I have four children that have or will be attending Andrews. I strongly agree that the play time is very important to our children. I am a mother of an A.D.H.D child and she needs that time to be loud, run, and make friends. As I am sure all the children that currently attend the school need on a daily basis. Those poor kids are playing on playground equipment that has been their when i attended andrews 23 years ago. How sad is that. Something needs to be done.
