During the renovation of Don Cecilio Martinez Elementary School, kids were left without a playground, having to use the gym for recess.
But Principal Martha Johnsen last week announced a new playground area was open.
“We’ve been without a playground since December of last year when they separated us and filtered us into other schools. Even the remaining students couldn’t go outside, but I’ll tell you what, it was worth waiting for,” Johnsen said.
Physical education teacher Michael Nava agreed.
