North Main is asking for the community’s help to win a $25,000 grant for a new outdoor fitness playground. The elementary school is one of 50 finalists in a nationwide contest. Winners are selected based on the number of votes they receive during the month of February. Dannon Danimals, Project Fit America and ShopRite will be awarding a grant for $25,000 each to four schools that secure the most votes from February 2 – 28, 2019. The grant funds outdoor fitness equipment/area, curriculum and lesson plan supplies, and physical education training.

Voting is open to anyone age 13 or older who resides in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania. There is one vote limit per day per email address. Share this information with friends and family.

“With a community as large and as engaged as Monroe-Woodbury, I am confident North Main will be a winner. We simply ask that our families, community members, local organizations and businesses vote every day and help spread the word. One vote, each day for 27 days, from each of your email accounts,” said Superintendent of Schools Elsie Rodriguez.

Mrs. Rodriguez encourages everyone to share voting information on social media channels and with people they come into contact with each day.

“This is truly a community effort that would result in an area that would serve as a teaching station, fitness area and playground to be enjoyed by our students and community. There are many ways to inspire success in our children,” Mrs. Rodriguez added. “This is just another example of our community coming together and doing something that enhances the school experience for our children.”
