Relyance Bank recently donated $2,400 toward the purchase of playground equipment at the site of the new Langston Magnet School on Silver Street.
Upon completion, the facility will offer 75,000 square feet of state-of-the-art space for Pre-K through sixth-grade students.
"As we complete the final stages of transforming the Langston campus -- thanks to a millage increase passed by our wonderful community -- we are working hard to ensure every detail is in place to offer an educational facility of the highest quality," Hot Springs School District Superintendent Stephanie Nehus said in a news release. "This playground equipment helps us to do that. Students need areas where they can enjoy free play and hands-on, outdoor activities in a safe environment. We are deeply appreciative of this investment in our district."
Hot Springs School District personnel are working to design a playground that will create an engaging atmosphere for free play, team-building exercises and sports, and general physical activity for students of all needs, the release said. During the transition, the playground is a small area across the street from the school. At the new facility, it will be nestled beside the building and will include maximized space for commercial grade school playground equipment, as well as open area for seating and other outdoor experiences.
"At Relyance, our world is neighbors helping neighbors," Relyance Bank Hot Springs Market President Todd Green said. "We take our role as a true community bank very seriously and being able to help the Hot Springs School District in this way is our privilege. It brings us a great deal of joy, knowing these funds will be put to good use."School on 12/30/2018
