Lowe's Toolbox for Education dontes Trike Track to elementary school

ESCAMBIA COUNTY  --  An Escambia County Elementary school is "redecorating" their playground to give some of it's youngest students a place to play, develop and learn.

OJ Semmes Elementary received a 5,000 dollar grant from Lowe's Toolbox for Education.
   
The grant is being used to build a "Tricycle Track" for the 8 "Pre-K" classes.
Right now the children ride through the hallways and in the lunchroom.   
   
A teacher at the school says this will help enrich the kid's learning.
"Develop large motor skills, fine motor skills, social skills--all the things that three and five year olds need to help with development."

The "Tricycle Track" will be ready on Friday--along with a Trike Car Wash and a small bridge to ride over.
   
They will also put in a sand box, art easels, and a couple of picnic tables.
