On Monday, August 26, students, teachers, staff and parents gathered around the newly installed playground for a Blessing and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.

Fr. Tony Blount, SOLT, pastor of St. Anthony Parish officiated the ceremony. The plan for the new playground including landscaping were initiated four years ago. The students were excited and anxious to use the colorful playground which includes a play area for elementary and middle school students. The playground was made possible by a grant from the Kennedy Foundation and funds raised by St. Anthony School Fiesta Mexicana Candidates.
