We asked. And you gave!

The Curley K8 Playing Field Committee gratefully announces that we have reached our goal!

What started as a dream – raise enough funds in one year to transform a 14,000 square foot broken up, unsafe asphalt lot into a safe, outdoor playing field and running track for our 870+ kindergarten through eighth grade students – has become reality. We are thrilled to announce that thanks to all of you, our generous friends, neighbors, city leaders and community partners, this project is officially being put out to bid through the Boston School Facilities department.

We want to thank everyone who supported us in this effort. We made a final push for the funds at the start of this New Year. We are humbled by the amount of donations, large and small, that have come pouring in. This is truly a community effort. We took our appeal to the streets, in the JP Gazette, in neighborhood and businesses association meetings, through appeals hosted by area businesses and through conversations with friends and neighbors. And you heard us and you responded. By contributing to this project, you are a part of a lasting legacy for our Curley students now – and into the future!

Stay tuned for the groundbreaking at the start of summer, with a ribbon cutting in September.

Thank you on behalf of the Curley Playing Field Campaign.
