Turf Campaign

Coming soon!

Pulaski Community,

  During these challenging times Friends of Pulaski felt it important to share some terrific news with you as soon as we could.  As you all know the Friends of Pulaski have been working for a few years to transform the blacktop into a turf field.  In December we announced that we had managed to secure funding through FOP’s continuous fundraising efforts, CPS capital improvement funds and Alderman Waguespack’s contribution of Open Space and Menu Funds.  At that time, we told you that we had secured enough funds to do more than we’d originally planned.  Not only were we going to be able to transform the blacktop to a multi-sport turf field, but the turf would also be surrounded with a running track, and workout stations on the perimeter.  Additionally, we were going to be able to include a transformation of the Leavitt street playground in the project as well.  Augmenting the existing playground with new turf play spaces and replacing the gazebo with additional playground equipment and soft surfaces.

  The CPS bidding process has concluded and we are excited to deliver even better news!  We were able to add even more to the plans, within the budget, and will also be transforming the middle playground as well.  In the middle playground we’ll be adding a small futsal court, creating new play spaces, adding equipment, adding more seating areas and putting in additional bike racks for commuting kids and teachers.

  The timeline, thus far, hasn’t changed either.  The entire transformation is planned to take place over the summer and be ready for the start of the 2020/2021 school year.  What a wonderful way to welcome the students, teachers and staff back to the school after the difficult end to our current school year.

  Thank you for the efforts of everyone who has gotten us to this point.

Comunidad Pulaski:

 

En estos tiempos difíciles, Friends of Pulaski queremos a compartir noticias buenas con ustedes lo mas pronto posible.   Ustedes saben que Friends of Pulaski he estado trabajando en transformarse el asfalto a un campo de césped. En diciembre, nosotros anunciamos que obtenemos financiación para hacer mas de lo que planeamos.  A través de nuestra propia recaudación de fondos, los fondos de Mejora de Capital de CPS, y la contribución de fondos de Espacios Abiertos y fondos de Menú de Alderman Waguespack, tuvimos suficiente fondos no solo a tranformar el asfalto pero tambien el campo de césped estará rodeado por una pista y áreas para los ejercicios.  Y, tenemos el dinero para transformar el parque de juegos en la calle Leavitt.  Van a poner mas césped and replacar el kiosko con equipo neuvo. 

 

¡El CPS proceso de licitación ha concluido y estamos emocionados para darles noticias aún mejores! Nostros pudimos agregue más al plan sin mas dinero.  Vamos a transformar el parque de juegos en el medio también.  Agregemos una pequeña cancha de futsal, espacios para jugar, equipo nuevo, más áreas de descanso y bastidores de bicicletas para las maestras y estudiantes.  

 

La línea de tiempo no ha cambiado hasta ahora. Se planea que toda la transformación ocurra durante el verano y esté lista para el comienzo del año escolar 2020-2021. ¡Qué maravillosa manera de dar la bienvenida a los estudiantes, maestros y personal a la escuela después del difícil final de este año escolar!

 

Gracias a todos los que nos han ayudado a hacer que esto suceda.
