Students and parents at Daniel Bagley Elementary School at 7821 Stone Ave. N. have been working hard at fundraising for their new “Green Field Plan,” but they still have a ways to go to reach their $200,000 goal by Jan. 31.
The project will replace the cracked concrete “field” just west of the school with 10,000 square feet of grass, 5,000 square feet of trees and plantings, pervious asphalt, a painted running track and a new backstop for ball sports.
The project has raised $97,500 from a City of Seattle matching grant and more than $40,000 in community donations, but they need more than $50,000 to reach their goal by the matching grant’s deadline of Jan. 31.
For an individual donation of $250, you’ll get a Finish Line Brick engraved with your choice of inscription. Businesses can purchase a brick for $500. You can donate online, or send a check made out to “DB PTA” with “Green Field” in the memo line, and mail to: Daniel Bagley Elementary, Attn PTA Green Field Donations, 7821 Stone Ave. N., Seattle, WA 98103.
The project’s next community meeting is at 6:30 p.m., Jan. 10, at Bethany Community Church, across the street from the school.
