The old Redding Elementary School 3rd and 4th grade playground has been torn down to make way for new structures. The Redding Highway Department removed the 30-year-old equipment. The PTA is now looking for volunteers to help next week to build the new playground, under the supervision of Ultiplay specialists. West Redding Fire Department has volunteered 10 of their company, but more people are needed. Funding for the community build project has been saved up since the early 2000s from private donations, local grants, PTA grants, and PTA student choice votes earmarking money for the playground. No Board of Education budget money or Redding taxpayer dollars have been allocated for this project.
