Children at St. Francis Elementary School in Iota have a new place to play.

According to their principal, Mike Darbonne, this is the first time they will have playground equipment.

Darbonne says the playground was built in only three and a half days through a donation to the school.

“It’s awesome. These little kids are going to enjoy it. They appreciate this, not having had anything exciting over the last few years,” the principal said.
