Stony Lane Playground Ribbon Cutting

On the evening of June 10, Stony Lane Elementary School held its official ribbon cutting of a new playground! Those in attendance for the exciting day included Superintendent Sean Adams, Assistant Superintendent Tim Donohue, Business Administrator Brooke Bartley, Supervisor of Buildings and Grounds Nicholas Naturile, Stony Lane Principal Tom Marshall; Stony Lane PTA President Nicole Fellner, members of the board of education, and our Stony Lane students and families.

The playground was in need of a makeover, as the prior one had been used for almost 30 years. Some special features of the new playground include a section exclusively for kindergarten containing age-appropriate equipment, a multi-use seesaw, and a new slide with various climbing options. Mr. Marshall said that when they opened the playground to students in January, it was “an amazing day. They have been waiting so long and they love it!” He continued, “The kids can’t wait to go out to recess.”

Attendees were encouraged to bring items to the ribbon-cutting ceremony to donate to the Paramus Food Pantry to “play it forward”.

“At Stony Lane, we have a long tradition of teaching our kids compassion,” explained Mr. Marshall. “We do this at Thanksgiving and at various other times of the year. This is one more time where we want to focus on others to share our joy because nothing is more ‘Stony’ than that!”

The Stony Lane community thanks the Paramus Board of Education and the Stony Lane PTA for funding the new playground and making a new and improved space for the Stony Lane students to enjoy.
