  • Park Christian School Students Design New Playground - 10/01/2020
    Nicholas Bormann (5th grade), Owen Bye (6th grade), Owen Goodman (5th grade), Jonah Redington (6th grade), & Caleb Striker (5th grade) were part of the Park Christian School FIRST Lego ...moreLeague team that designed the new PCS playground. Here they explain the process they used to create the plan.
    Have you ever been to a playground and wanted to play on it every day? We, one of the FIRST Lego League teams at Park Christian School, decided to design the new playground for PCS for our project. We surveyed the K- 6th graders so they could choose what they wanted on a rank from 1-11, and the 12th question was an option for suggestions. We created a chart to count the rankings. We met with PCS President Nellermoe and discussed the budget. We then looked at some catalogs of playground equipment that fit with the survey. Then, we made a display board for our project and presented it to the FIRST Lego League judges at the NDSU tournament in January. We are very happy that the zipline, tire swing, and the Oodle swing were chosen from our project for the new PCS playground.
    One of the PCS recess supervisors/elementary physical education teacher, Mrs. Laura Harris, is already seeing benefits from the new playground being translated into the classroom. "As recess supervisor and phy-ed teacher I spend part of each day outside on the new playground equipment with the kids. The new equipment is designed for fun and creative play. As a physical education teacher, I also see the hidden benefits of strength and coordination enhancement. In the past few weeks, I have noticed many children gaining strength and confidence on the tightropes, swings, zip line, and monkey bars. Physical development will contribute to greater academic achievement."
    The Park Christian playground will be enjoyed for years to come. Staff, parents, community businesses and students helped prepare, plan, and implement the design. This playground was made possible in part by the generation support of the BNSF Railway Foundation, The Alex Stern Foundation, and the Kiwanis Club of Fargo.
