About This Activity

The Monona Grove School District board approved $20,000 to be used for site prep and removal of the current playground areas at Cottage Grove School for the year 2015-2016!  For the past several years, the PTO has been putting aside funds to be used toward updating the playgrounds.  Currently the PTO has around $30,000 that could be used in conjunction with the district’s money.  Unfortunately, playground equipment is EXTREMELY expensive. There are currently 2 playground areas at Cottage Grove School that need updating. 

The PTO is committed to installing a variety of quality, exciting and age-appropriate equipment.  This simply cannot be accomplished without backing from the Cottage Grove Community.  We will be looking for support from families and local businesses as we have our first annual fun2play run.  Please consider making a substantial investment for the students now and in the future.

The PTO has secured a bid for playground plans and WOW it looks pretty amazing!!! We believe we will need to raise an additional $35,000.  Cottage Grove School students could see their new playgrounds going in before the end of the 2015-2016 school year!  Please “like” our Facebook page (Cottage Grove PTO) to keep updated.
The 5K fun run starts at CG elementary school and offers a variety of sun shade, inclines and declines.  Majority of the race course will be on the streets.  The route offers a water station and enthusicatic encouragement throughout the route.  The kids race will be held behind Cottage Grove Elementary School around the soccor field. At the conclusion of the kids run the activities begin.  They include local business booths, a karate demonstration, a bouncy house, fire truck and ambulance viewing and police dog demonstration.

Gift cards offered to top 4 male and top 4 female finishers.
