Bair Playground Grant
About the Grant
In 2007, Harley and Shirley Bair established the Bair Playground Grant to provide annual funds to update and renovate playgrounds at elementary schools in the LPS district. School playgrounds provide students with opportunities for physical and social development and build strong, safe neighborhoods. These funds are provided to upgrade, replace and repair playgrounds and equipment to increase students' experiences and to promote healthy children through exercise.
