“With a shoe-string-tight budget, fluctuating enrollment and a depressed local economy, our savings account and public donations of time and money still have not been enough to replace our twenty-five year old structure.” said Jason Olsen, Member of the Satsop School Board. With the grant from the Grays Harbor Community Foundation, the rural school is now able to build a new ADA approved playground.
