“BIG NEWS! Forest Avenue School is thrilled to announce that the Town of Middletown, RI Town Council has unanimously approved a $30,000 donation to our Playground Project.
This generous donation comes on the heels of our very successful Blue and White Party in conjunction with Aquidneck PTG (who also received $14,000 from Town Council for their playground).
As a result, both of our elementary schools will be able to move forward with ALL proposed playground projects and repairs.
We could not be more shocked, or excited about this news!! A HUGE Thank You to our Middletown Town Council and community at large, who saw a need at Forest and really stepped up to help all Middletown kids”.
