Goodwell Booster Club works to fund replacement playground equipment

The Goodwell Eagles Booster Club is working to replace the school district's worn and nearly hazardous playground equipment to the tune of $50,000.
Booster club volunteers, teachers, administrators, board members and students have written letters outlining the need for new equipment that can better weather the Oklahoma panhandle elements. The school district, facing the same budget cuts as schools all around the state, have prioritized education in the classroom, and are unable to fund the construction of a sturdier, safer play set for elementary students. The playground also serves as a place to play outside of school recess for the community.
