The Johnson Park School (JP) Parent-Teacher Organization (P.T.O.) is excited to announce the building of an amphitheater on the school’s grounds. While this project is being funded entirely by the JP P.T.O., the organization would like to offer the community an opportunity to be a permanent part of JP history.
Construction will begin at the end of the school year and should be completed before school starts in September. While the names of all current students and faculty will be engraved on P.T.O.-sponsored stones, the P.T.O. thought it would be meaningful to give the greater JP community an opportunity to leave its mark.
Robert Ginsberg, JP principal, commented, “We’re all familiar with the grassy hill that leads to our pavilion and playground and how muddy the slope becomes after wet weather. Our P.T.O. identified this as a perfect space to construct an amphitheater.” Ginsberg continued, “Our staff is very excited as it considers the possibilities to use this year-round space for performances, presentations, outdoor classrooms, assemblies, and so much more.”
Ginsberg also commented, “We recognize that many in our community have a connection with JP. We’re offering current families, alumni, JP neighbors, and friends of our school and community the opportunity to leave their mark by investing in commemorative bricks.”
The success of JP’s P.T.O.’s fundraising efforts, as well as its ongoing financial prudence over the years, allows JP to build this amazing new community space. A dedicated team of JP parents worked closely with the Princeton Public Schools’ Board of Education, district officials, municipal engineers and zoning officials, and other experts in the field to gain approvals and secure the most fiscally responsible partners.
The customized bricks will be a permanent testimony to our communities’ loyalty to our school and the education of our children. Donors can have their bricks engraved to convey a message to current, past, or future JP students, honor a loved one or commemorate the donors’ connection to Johnson Park.
