Keyunda Wilson of Van Asselt Elementary writes,
Dear Neighbors, the time has finally arrived! We will begin building our community playground at Van Asselt Elementary (8311 Beacon Ave. S.) on November 19. We are in need of 75 volunteers to help construct, spread wood chips, paint, and various other tasks. If you are available any amount of time on this day and would like to give your support please email me as soon as possible email@example.com.
Van Asselt is now located at the former African-American Academy school site, a bit south of the old Van Asselt site.
