Tellepsen Challenge Complete
Kelly Cliburn

Raising the bar (and funds) on our playground renovation.

When the Tellepsen Family issued their challenge in May, the St. Francis community swung into action with its trademark enthusiasm. Now, just five months later, we're delighted to announce we've reached our goal! More than 65 families contributed to raise $150,000 for our Main Campus playground renovation, and we are grateful.

Designed for ages 5 to 12, the new playground features swings, slides, rock walls, climbing and balancing elements, tetherball and more! The final step in the renovation will be adding sun shades for protection.

Since opening this month, the new playground has been getting rave reviews from students who are loving their new outdoor space.

Thank you again to all the families who generously supported our efforts. And special thanks to the Tellepsen family for making such a meaningful investment in our school. Together, you made dreams of a new playground come true for our students.
