Baltimore County Board of Education Vice Chair and 5th District member Julie Henn announced that two schools will be receiving capital projects on their sites.
“[Tuesday] night, the Board approved privately funded capital projects for Gunpowder Elementary and Perry Hall High,” Henn said.
Gunpowder Elementary Outdoor Stage
The Gunpowder Elementary PTA is donating the cost of installation, materials, labor, fees, and the overhead associated with building the stage area of the newly revitalized playground at Gunpowder Elementary.
The new stage area will be dedicated as part of the Officer Caprio Playground project. Parents of the PTA at Gunpowder Elementary School began The Officer Caprio Playground Project in November 2019.
Perry Hall High Field Netting
The Perry Hall H.S. Athletic Boosters is donating the cost to cover the installation of ball-stop netting on the stadium field. Perry Hall High School Official opened in 1967. The sport stadium is located directly behind the school. The ball-stop netting will allow several teams to practice in the stadium facility at the same time. In addition, this safety netting will also protect against potential injuries.
“Thank you very much to the Gunpowder Elementary PTA and the Perry Hall High Athletic Boosters for their extremely generous support of these projects,” Henn said.
