Dear Newark Supporter,
Please help out our children who have little to no playground at Perkins Elementary by visiting the link below and voting every day between February 15th and March 15th. Most of our current playground has been condemned and the remaining parts are not ADA accessible for the 44 students who attend a BOCES program in our building. We are a small, rural, high needs school, so every vote for us counts!!!!!
The link to vote is here: https://www.culturelle.com/ProjectPlayground
Perkins Elementary School of Newark Central School District was selected to be one of five finalists for a chance to win a national grant to receive $100,000 to win a new playground!
The winner out of the five finalists will be determined by who receives the most votes.
Everyone is permitted to vote one time per day between February 15th and March 15th.
If you have friends, family, colleagues or acquaintances anywhere in the world, please forward this link to them, so they can vote for our children, as well. Please also help us out by sending out reminders to them to vote daily.
For many of our kids, the only recreation they get is by going to the playground. Our playground is a place of play, it is a place for community, it is a place of pride. Please help us come together to live up to our district motto, that we strive to serve “every student, every day!” Here’s to voting and voting often.
SAVE THESE DATES!!! June 15th, 2018 will be the Wine and Artisan Festival and July 17th, 2018 will be the 2nd Annual Taste of Wayne County. Both events will take place at T. Spencer Knight Park along the Erie Canal. Details will follow closer to the events.
There are plans in the coming months to begin several projects around the Village. There will be a complete reconstruction of Route 88 South, from the canal bridge on the north to Rose Drive on the south. Also, there will be an LED lighting upgrade underway throughout the Village, and upgrades to the East Avenue Bridge. The final project will involve the replacement of the culvert under West Union Street near First Choice Electric Supply and the Canal View Family Restaurant.
