New Playground Games
Woodridge PTO used funds generated from their 2013 Spring Dance to purchase more than 150 cans of striping paint and over 20 new game stencils in addition to brand new basketball systems. A few dedicated Woodridge parent volunteers and the Woodridge PTO Executive Board members spent two full days painting the new games on the blacktop areas to revitalize more than 45,000 square feet of space between the two schools.
Some of the new games include a "Silly Shoes" agility game where children have to twist and turn to follow a wacky footpath, a bullseye bean bag toss, a long jump, a pirate's treasure map, the solar system, and several different hopscotch games just to name a few. The games were strategically chosen not only to encourage fitness and exercise, but also to prevent conflict among the children during recess. As enrollment at Woodridge Local Schools is steadily increasing each year, the playgrounds have to accommodate anywhere from 75-100 kids during each recess period several times everyday.
Woodridge Primary School currently has approximately 450 students while Woodridge Intermediate School serves close to 500 students.
