WILLMAR -- New playground equipment is coming to Roosevelt Elementary School to accommodate the younger students it will serve next year.

The Willmar Public Schools Foundation Board agreed on Monday to donate $5,000 to help purchase the $14,000 playground set.

The PTSA organizations from Lincoln, Jefferson and Roosevelt elementary schools are donating a total of $6,000 to the purchase.

In the past, Roosevelt has had students in grades 4 to 6, and its playground equipment is designed for children in that age group.

Next fall, it will have students in grades 1-5, and kindergarteners will be added when a seven-room addition is completed.
