Help Cora Kelly Get and Install New Playground



After nearly a year of fundraising, the playground equipment for Cora Kelly's new STEM themed playground has been ordered and will arrive in early November! Now the kids of Cora Kelly need you!


The Cora Kelly PTA is planning two CK Playground Days. Volunteers will help prep the playground site and install the new playground equipment. Helping to build a new playground is a great way to spend a Saturday working in your community. They'll even throw in hot dogs and burgers to keep volunteers happy throughout the day. We'll update you with the dates when we get them.


How can you help before November?


  • Register Your Grocery Cards: Register your grocery and Target cards this year and select Cora Kelly as the school that benefits (Giant, Target, Safeway thru, Harris Teeter, etc).
