Meeting Sunday’s completion goal will depend on volunteer turnout, not rain, according to those involved with the project.
KINGSPORT — Day one of the six-day community rebuild of The Castle Playground at Johnson Elementary School went well under blue skies, school and community volunteers said, despite temperatures that topped out in the mid-30s.
Kingsport City Schools, Johnson Elementary and the Johnson Parent-Teacher Organization are asking the Kingsport community and regional friends of The Castle Playground to help with the project at the school.
KINGSPORT — The reimagined Castle Playground at Johnson Elementary School will be built in a little more than a month, almost 29 years after the original was built. But some longtime Johnson teachers didn’t have to reimagine the contents of a 1990 time capsule buried at the playground.
Almost all of Johnson’s 580 students, plus teachers and staff, converged on the playground Wednesday afternoon, as demolition by a private company may start shortly after the dismissal of students Friday.
