So the SCC has been actively fundraising over the last two years to purchase new equipment.

“We made a big push the last year to get us to this point,” said Rowe, Wednesday morning as she was at the school helping install the equipment.

The overall project will have a cost of approximately $120,000, said Rowe.

The installation of Playquest equipment began Monday, and it was hoped that they would be finished Wednesday, including cement work and landscaping.

The work was being carried out by SCC volunteers, aided by a group of volunteers from the Raider Gridder football team, and other parents just taking time to help, said Rowe.
