Holley gets new playground equipment

Wesley Parker, left, and Jeff Landtroop, Sweet Home School District maintenance employees, prepare forms for a path around Holley Elementary School's new playground structure, below, which has handicap-accessible components.

New playground equipment was installed last week at Holley School. The school had an old wooden play structure that "definitely needed to go," said Principal Todd Barrett, because it was showing a lot of wear. The school's PTC raised about $46,000 for the new equipment, which the district is installing. The PTC raises most of its funds through an annual auction. Its second largest fund-raising event is the Lick-a-Scoop booth at the Oregon Jamboree.
