Sycolin Creek Elementary School in Leesburg, VA is in the process of designing and installing Phase II of their playground. When they looked across their student body, with approximately 10% of the student population in the special education program, SCES realized they needed an equally unique playground where all of the students could have fun and experience the joy of inclusive play.
Through grants and PTA fundraisers SCES is slowly raising the money to build the playground. They were able to get a local church to build the walls surrounding the playground area but were in need of some sprucing up and shade. Sunrise owner, Joe Markell, whose children attend Sycolin Creek, donated 4 Zelkova trees to plant around the playground area. Sunrise employees donated their time and helped students from the regular education classes alongside students from the special needs classes to plant the 15 foot tall trees. It was a great event which was almost cancelled by the rain but then the sun broke out as well as smiles on everyone’s faces.
There will be elements in this playground to allow every child to engage in meaningful and appropriate play and now thanks to Sunrise Landscape + Design they’ll have lots of shade to play under as well.
