Our Facebook Feed

As you know, a few of our middle school students have been involved in a really unique opportunity to improve their neighborhood by developing ideas and gathering community input and support.

Their idea of designing an amphitheater in our neighboring Palmer Square was chosen as one of the top three projects in the city! The students went downtown last week to present their campaign to professional architects and designers, and were recognized on stage for their hard work.

Congratulations to our amazing students!

You can check out their idea and designs here (mrgoodsclass.wixsite.com/boulevards/project-03)

Continue to support their campaign here (www.yourmunicipal.com/projects/getting-people-to-the-boulevards/ideas/palmer-park-amphitheater)
