Fitness Fund

   

(total $ updated 3/10/2017)

*** updated May 3, 2017 ***

 We are extremely pleased to announce that The Radburn Association and the NJ State Historical Preservation Office have both granted us approval for the playground to be built!

 The modifications to our original application requested by The Radburn Association included relocation of the proposed playground from outside of the 1st grade door to outside of the 3rd grade door and a change in layout orientation.

 To date, the students, parents and surrounding community members have raised $54,000 toward our goal of a playground.  We are currently $11,000 shy of our projected costs.  Our plan is to build this summer as soon as school lets out in late June.  Next September our students will be welcomed back with a brand new playground ready for them!

 Please consider making a contribution toward the Radburn Elementary School PTA’s Fitness Fund.  In doing so, you will be investing in our students’ continued health, well-being and fitness. 

 Checks can be made out to Radburn Elementary School PTA with Fitness Fund in the memo line and sent to 18-00 Radburn Road, Fair Lawn, NJ 07410. 

 Please note that as a registered 501 (c)(3), all donations to the Radburn PTA are fully tax-deductible.

Photos of visual impact:   Our Playground Representative from Miracle provided PGN files of the proposed playground with transparent backgrounds.  Our PTA parent volunteer took pictures from home plate and the "Mall" views and photo shopped the playground in.  We would like to provide everyone the opportunity to view what the true visual impact of our unit would be and to have an open discussion regarding the impact.  The unit we propose was designed to blend ... dark green, dark brown and beige ... no primary or bright colors.

One of the goals of the Radburn PTA is to raise $60,000 for the Fitness Fund. The first goal of the fund will cover the design, approval and construction of a Playground on school property outside the first grade door.  Do you want to know where it will be? See the photo below!  This overall goal has been broken down into two distinct fundraising campaigns which we call Wave 1 and Wave 2.
 
The goal of fundraising Wave 1 is to reach $35,000.  Once we reach that amount, the Fair Lawn Board of Education will complete all the necessary documentation required for The Radburn Association's approval.&nbapproved, construction can commence as soon as possible because the BOE will loan us the additional $25,000 so that we can complete construction.
 
The goal of fundraising Wave 2 is to pay back the BOE the additional funds they contributed, or approximately $25,000.
