Rose Park Elementary School strives to be a place where physical limitations don’t set children apart but are celebrated and embraced by all; a place where all children can play together and explore the world around them
The Rose Park PTA's goal is to purchase inclusive playground equipment, wheelchair-accessible ground covering, necessary borders, and wheelchair-accessible access ramps. These items will allow for students with special needs to have access to playground equipment - access that they currently do not have - where they can integrate and play with their typically-developed peers. The goal goes beyond the simple addition of a few accessible pieces of equipment but instead focuses on the mutually beneficial and important value of inclusive play between students who are typically-developed and those of diverse abilities.
