Collinsville Upper Elementary Receives Shade Structure Grant
Elementary has been awarded a Shade Structure Grant from the American
Academy of Dermatology. The grant will enable a permanent shade structure
to be built over a portion of the playground that will protect 650 children
each day from the suns harmful ultraviolet rays.
Since its launch in 2000, the AADs Shade Structure Grant Program has awarded funding for more than 400 shade structures, which provide shade for more than 3 million individuals each day. Dr. Janelle Pavlis, a member of the AAD, sponsored Collinsville Upper Elementarys grant application.
Collinsville Upper Elementary will be holding a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new shade structure after its installation later this summer.
