AFCES Families, We are extremely excited to announce that AFC Elementary School will be getting a brand new playground in the near future. The new playground will be installed with a combination of surfacing that includes mulch and rubber foam. The rubber foam will create an easy and accessible path to the new playground's two handicap accessible pieces of equipment. The attached plans for the playground remodel have been approved and are being made possible through the district's Sales Tax Revenue, the AFC PTC, and a generous donation from the Class of 1970.
