Under threatening skies, kids of all abilities were able to play side by side as the Kewaunee School District officially opened its all-inclusive playground Wednesday afternoon. A crowd of eager children and adults stood by as Kewaunee School District Superintendent Karen Treml made opening comments before the ribbon on the $220,000-plus playground was cut. It has been over a year of fundraising for the school district to make the playground a reality. It brought a smile to Treml’s face as able bodied and special needs kids will be able to play together for years to come.
Fundraising will continue for the playground because of higher than expected pricing for the spongy poured-in surface that will cover the entire area when the project is complete.
