Construction Underway On K-2 Playground

Written on 04/23/2024

Ribbon cutting, working from the rooftop, and sliming Dr. Hayes are all part of the celebration.

The generosity of the Worthington Christian community strikes again, making it possible for construction to begin on the K-2 playground expansion. Gifts explicitly designated for the playground, along with a combination of unrestricted gifts and operational dollars, have made a way to complete the project before school ends.

We continue to seek playground-specific gifts so unrestricted gifts may be used toward other school projects.

It’s time for the WC community to come together and celebrate! Don’t miss these upcoming events.
