PMSA Students Help Build a Playground for Broadview

PMSA students are literally leaving their mark on their communities as they work to build a better place for the children of Broadview.

In early October, 14 PMSA students joined students from Lindop School District 92, PAEC, Proviso East, and Proviso West High Schools to help the Broadview Park District build a brand new playground.

PMSA gave an artistic hand. They painted and drew signs and pictures for the park.

“The students that came over from PMSA actually have their artwork displayed all around the park,” said Katrina Thompson, Executive Director of the Broadview Park District. “It was just amazing that they came over. They came over on a Saturday to give back to their community. To give back to the community and to have their work displayed years after the fact is just phenomenal. We always get a lot of good volunteers from PMSA. Hopefully, we’ll be building another park soon. We want all of the kids from Proviso to come out and help again.”

The students helped the Park District build something magnificent that will last for decades to come.

“The project was a lot of fun and it gave me a real sense of satisfaction,” said PMSA senior Evan Harper who also volunteered with Broadview Park district over the summer. “It was a unique experience because not too many people can say that they helped build a playground.”

“I wanted to build the playground to be helpful,” said PMSA senior Shane Cotrell. “I wanted to help make the park better for the kids in the community.”

PTHS students district wide are volunteering across the Proviso community. Each school works to give students a sense of civic pride and duty. Students always manage to demonstrate how the smallest actions can make a big difference.
