After the district lost it’s only shaded structure on the Elementary Playground this spring, when a storm ripped out the only remaining tree, the dirtrict had to do something to satisfy their Pre-K grant. So, in going with the farm theme of the village of Cerro Gordo, a grain bin like pavillion was put up as a cooling station. (picture provided by Cerro Gordo Schools)
The station was built by BINS 247 LLC a company in Assumption, IL owned by Susan Wise and Perry Maryland.
The Elementary school also collected 733 pounds of bottle caps from the community. Principal Jodi Neveill says, “CG Custodians drove to Green Tree Plastics LLC in Evansville, IN to drop off the caps and pick up our 4 benches. The PTA paid for the processing fee for the benches. We are still collecting caps.
Thank you to all who assisted with the cooling station and new benches for our elementary playground!”
The benches will be placed under the cooling station.
