Providence City Council Majority Leader John J. Igliozzi, with the help of third graders from Anthony Carnevale Elementary School, will “officially” cut the ribbon on the school’s new playground structure on Friday, September 14 at noon.
“I am thrilled to help bring this playground structure to the community,” stated City Council Majority Leader John J. Igliozzi. “This is a perfect example of the synergies that can happen when the legislative body of city government partners with city departments to maximize community investments. The playground improves the student experience, and provides the whole community with a place to gather and enjoy being outside and most importantly have fun.”
“I am very grateful to Councilman Igliozzi for partnering with us on this improvement to our outdoor play space,” said Christopher Maher, superintendent of Providence Public Schools. “We know that kids perform better in school when they have the opportunity to exercise and play outside, and this creates the ideal environment for both those activities.”
The financing for the playground was a joint investment between the City Council and the School Department with Leader Igliozzi using his Neighborhood Improvement Funds for the project.
