Francis Wyman Elementary School Playground Grand Opening

Posted on Updated on

On September 18th, Francis Wyman Elementary School in Burlington had its grand opening ceremony for their new state of the art playground.  This has been in the works for the past three years, organized by Mary Sweeney, Susan Astone, Francis Wyman Principal, and people in the Burlington community

LABBB Collaborative has 3 Classrooms in the Francis Wyman Elementary Program, our 2 multi-handicapped classrooms (IDEAL) and our Developmental-K classroom.   Classroom Teacher, Maria Cormier, was a big part of working with the architects of the playground to make it accessible to all LABBB students.

The Francis Wyman playground committee dedicated a Maze for Marisol O’Brien, a LABBB student who passed away last December.  Marisol was a student from Lexington who attended the LABBB IDEAL Program at Francis Wyman Elementary school.

Below is a video of Mr. O’Brien who spoke at the ceremony.  This was a very emotional speech which I wanted to share with you.  Please listen I think you will find it very moving. The Audio is a little hard to hear at some points in the video but most of it is clear.

Susan Astone, Francis Wyman Principal, introduces Mr. O’Brien.
