We continue to raise money for our SPARK Park. The SPARK Park committee projects needing to raise at least $100,000 to create the kind of park Stevens Elemen-tary and the community de-serve. This would include creat-ing fitness stations, outdoor learning areas and a play area for all to enjoy. Through SPARK, HISD, and Stevens Fundraising, we are already nearly halfway to our goal, having raised $45,000.
SPARK Park is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) program through the City of Houston that helps public schools improve their community grounds. With SPARK Park and its alliance with Houston ISD, we have the opportunity to make major improvements to our out-door areas. Vibrant school grounds stimulate economic growth, increase our property values, bolster school and com-munity pride, and help curb crime.
We will continue our fundraising in the Spring with monthly Cane’s Nights the last Wednesday of every month, a Father Daughter Dance in February, and Spaghetti Family Fun Night in March. Construction is set to begin in late May or early June with com-pletion of the park in October of 2015.
You can make donations to Stevens’ SPARK Park at school or by going to sparkpark.org/donate and designate your dona-tion for Stevens.
