MVSB is proud to support the Laconia School District with a $10,000 donation that will help to replace and upgrade playground equipment at Woodland Heights Elementary, Elm Street School and Pleasant Street School in Laconia this summer.

“There are a lot of older pieces of equipment at the schools that we determined were in need of replacement or refurbishment, so we began a public/private fundraising campaign that has seen great community support so far,” said Steve Tucker, Laconia School District Superintendent. “We are grateful to MVSB, who has proudly shown their support for the school district’s local athletic programs, school initiatives, the Huot MVSB Culinary Arts Center and now to help us provide safer and more engaging playscapes for Laconia children and families to enjoy for years to come.”

“Playgrounds are a vitally important component of child development, health and learning, and we are excited for this great opportunity to help bring improved resources to the children in our local community,” said Elizabeth Brothers, MVSB Mortgage Loan Officer NMLS# 69282.

The total cost to upgrade playground equipment at all of the schools will be around $489,000 and the district is seeking to raise $239,000 in donations through their fundraising efforts.
