Hasty Elementary School Fine Arts Academy has a brand new playground specially made for students with special needs.
Thanks to several generous sponsors, including the Service League of Cherokee County, Hasty Elementary School was able build a new special needs playground on campus.
The playground includes equipment and swings that are made to work better for children with special needs.
The idea for the playground came from a local mother who noticed a void. Amy Kelley stepped up and began raising support for the playground, which she plans to enjoy with her son, Jack.
School, community members and parents attended the ribbon- cutting ceremony for the new equipment Thursday morning, when students where with special needs were invited to test out the playground.
Based on the smiles from the children, the playground is a success.
Sponsors were recognized for their donations which made the new playground possible.
