It Takes a Village to Build a Playground

Scores of Rochester Memorial School students, staff, and parents – as well as ORR School District Superintendent Doug White – gathered to celebrate the official opening of their new playground on Monday, constructed last month by volunteers. “It took a village to get this done,” said faculty member Derek Davignon during the festivities. “It’s proud day for our entire community.” New principal Craig Medeiros spoke, as well. Elementary students and others participated in several ribbon cuttings on various playground equipment – including Julia Rood on the slide. Photos by Shawn Badgley

    So nice to have coverage of this event at RMS. One minor note, our new principal is Derek Medeiros, not Craig as mentioned in the article.
