On Friday, December 30th at 12:00 p.m. Little Red School hosted a lunch Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to inaugurate their new K-5 Playground and celebrate 95 years. The Little Red School playground was made possible through a grant that Kathy Romero, School Principal applied for early in the fall that paid for 50% of the equipment. It was approved by three of the remaining board members(President: Robert Noon, Clerk: Mercie Fernandez, Ron Fish) for the current term to purchase the playground after seeing how deteriorated the playground in place was.
The Little Red School celebrated with a red ribbon cutting by board members and a barbecue grill lunch for attendees. Mr. Noon president of the school board cut the ribbon and was the first one to go down the slide. Also, former superintendent Mr. Lel Newlon and his daughter Terri attended the ceremony.
