Madrid School Adds Playground Equipment

Madrid Community Schools recently completed additions to the elementary playground. Several new pieces of equipment are in place, all of which provide extensive options for play, creativity, and muscle development. At a time when many schools are cutting back on recess time, Madrid is recognizing the importance of play in both learning and development.
Children and adults alike notice how the new equipment poses challenges similar to the ones faced in the popular show, American Ninja Warrior. The new disc swing is easily the most popular addition. If you haven’t visited the playground, come check it out! You might even try it out for yourself.
