In August, Akiva School students came back to another year of innovative academic programming, inspirational Jewish learning and… a beautiful new playground!

Last year, the school’s Annual Giving Campaign was directed towards raising funds for a new playground. Through the generosity of the Akiva School community, several lead donors and the Rosalind & Morris Goodman Family foundation, the school was able raise over $400 000 to rebuild and enhance their entire playground area.  With the help of design firm Fahey et Associes, along with input from teachers, parents and even the youngest Akiva students (Kindergarten children drew pictures of their dream playgrounds.), the new playground was designed and built during the summer break.
