A Better Place to Play
As a continuation of our partnership with the City of Edwardsville Parks and Recreation Department, District 7 is pleased to share information on an exciting new city initiative – “A Better Place to Play.”
The campaign, “A Better Place to Play,” will fund three projects in Edwardsville: a Spray & Play Park - which feature a splash pad and dry playground, fitness track, shade structures and pavilions, an Ice Rink/Teen Center which features a 43,000 sq. ft. indoor facility for hockey, figure skating, and recreational skate use, and a multi-use Sports Park which meets the growing need for field space for athletes of all ages.
We believe that this campaign is a great initiative that not only improves recreational facilities, but also provides additional opportunities for all District 7 students and community residents. “A Better Place to Play” is the future of our Edwardsville community!
Kindergarten registration has been extended on Thursday, February 26, 2015. Hours of registration will be from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at all primary schools.
