In brief: Montclair Community Pre-K to dedicate new playground Oct. 19
The Montclair Community Pre-K will hold a dedication ceremony for its new Discovery Playground and Gardens on Saturday, Oct. 19 at 11 a.m.
Among those present will be Mayor Robert Jackson, Board of Education President Eve Robinson, Third Ward Councilman Sean Spiller, and MCPK Executive Director Amy Dorr.
The dedication ceremony will coincide with the school’s annual harvest festival, which begins at 9 a.m. that day.
The MCPK Discovery Playground and Gardens were designed by students, staff, parents and community members to provide an all-access play space for the children of Montclair. Funding support for the renovations was provided by the Montclair Board of Education, gifts and grants from individuals, corporations, and foundations.
The school has worked over the past year to overhaul the playground, since some of the existing equipment was 20 years old.
