As many of you have seen on Facebook and Twitter, the field is open for business! There will still be some improvements and finishing touches to be made, but we are so thrilled with how it's turned out.
On Thursday, January 11, we celebrated the new field with a ribbon cutting ceremony! Erika Mitchell of the Atlanta Board of Education and members of the SOFi board joined Ms. Strickling and our student council in commemorating the event, with a special dedication to Eric Jones for his tireless work to make the field a reality. The wet weather was ideal for the event - the lack of mud was an instant reminder of how much the field improves Bolton's outdoor play area!
Thank you to SOFi board members, both past and present, who have worked so hard on this project (again - big shout out to Eric Jones!) and all of our many parents, friends, administrators and teachers for donating your time and treasure to get us to this point. We could not have done this without your support!
Please also remember to save the date for the 5th Annual SOFi's Night Charity Auction on Saturday, March 10. It's the success of events like this that have made the turf field possible, and we are so excited to see what new improvements can be made with your continued support.
