The Boston Globe covered the opening of our schoolyard this week! They write:
As a sea of colorful streamers and cheering children flooded the new $1.25 million playground at the Rafael Hernandez K-8 Dual Language School in Roxbury, a group of former students watched and smiled with pride.
Three years ago, the ninth graders led the effort to replace their old, broken playground with a colorful, challenging new one. There’s a ropes course, a paved four-square area and turf-covered green space, among other features.
On Thursday, the former students joined Mayor Martin J. Walsh and other officials to cut a big, red ribbon on the playground they helped to plan, design and raise money for.
