Support continues to grow in the Kewaunee area over its school district’s plan to build a new all-inclusive playground. Kewaunee School District has raised over $100,000 for the equipment needed to allow kids with disabilities play alongside their able-bodied friends. Whether it is local groups hosting fundraisers, being allowed to “dash for cash” during a hockey game, or residents stopping by to donate in person, the generosity of the community is not lost on superintendent Karen Treml.
The playground is expected to cost over $200,000 to build after it was not included in a $15.2 million referendum passed in 2015.
