Elementary kids happy to have playground rebuilt

COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) -

Students at Sixth District Elementary School have a playground again. The grand re-opening was held for the Maryland Millennium Playground on Friday morning.

The playground was severely damaged by a fire in June. The elementary school and Gateway Community and Technical College paired up to raise money to rebuild the playground.

The fund drive raised more than $10,000 through a combination of individual donations and grants. "The spirit of this community really enlivens this corner of Covington," Heather Abbott said. "The re-opening is not only a way to say ‘thank-you' but also is a tribute to all the children, sponsors, donors and volunteers who made it all happen."
