Project: Picnic Tables

Join our recent campaign and contribute towards picnic tables for the four elementary schools and the Middle School!

The NHEF has placed three picnic tables at each of the elementary schools and two at the Middle School. Each set of tables includes an ADA-compliant one. Outdoor learning can take place more readily with these tables and classes may have opportunities to eat their snacks and/or lunches outdoors as well. Staff will also reap the benefits of being able to take a break outdoors for lunch or possibly even have meetings at these tables.

Please reach out to us if you would like to sponsor a table or contribute towards one. We will be announcing a dedication event in the spring to thank our sponsors.

A huge thank you to our picnic table sponsors to date:

  • North Haven Education Association
  • North Haven Education Foundation
  • Gargano Family Dentistry
  • North Haven Rotary Club
  • The Luoma Family in Memory of "Gramps" Stephen K. Morse
  • Olive Josine and Lucy

With support from our amazingly generous community, we are certain we will accomplish this goal of placing these tables throughout the campuses!

Community-sponsored tables will be labeled with steel, donor recognition plaques to perpetually recognize your contribution.

The Foundation encourages our community businesses to consider sponsoring a table as a gift to our students and schools. 

Total cost per table, including shipping and tax is $1,000 

Donations of $500 or more will be recognized on a plaque 

We will contact you for your recognition plate proof.

“Green Acres is very grateful to have these picnic tables. They will be used to provide opportunities for students and staff to have shared outdoor seating for everything from eating, working together, or just sitting and having the opportunity to socialize and talk together. Thank you again for helping the students and staff of North Haven Public Schools!” 

Christian J. Strickland
Principal, Green Acres Elementary School

“ ...They (tables) would be used by our students (recess, outdoor snack, outdoor learning) and our staff! Also, many families use the playground on the weekends, and they would use the tables for quick little picnics.” 

Christopher Mc Laughlin
Principal, Ridge Road Elementary School

“At the middle school level, the tables will provide a place for the teachers to take a break and eat lunch. As we move through the year, I can also envision staff using them for small group activities.“ 

Laurie Bankowski
Principal, North Haven Middle School
