Emmet D. Williams to replace outdated structures
Emmet D. Williams Elementary School is set to get a new playground this summer, and the organizing effort behind the move originated in one of its classrooms.
When the kids in Freya Koester’s fourth-grade class got a persuasive writing assignment last spring, they asked why the playground was so old.
The school is located in Shoreview near Lake Josephine and part of Roseville Area Schools District 623. Its faded plastic play structures are over two decades old.
