Linda McGill Playground Fund - St. Joseph School Seattle

Linda McGill Playground Fund

Linda McGill was a bright light in our community. She shared her love of life, energy, and joy with all of us. As a fixture on the playground and as part of the Jaguar Club staff, Linda touched the lives of all students. It was a tremendous loss to our community when she passed away last October. Linda made sure that every student was known and loved.

Linda had a gift for finding the positive in all situations. It’s fitting that after the damage the playground sustained, we can follow her lead and imagine a better space for our students. In order to realize the improvements before the start of the school year we need your help.

We will receive some funds from insurance, but it will not cover the total cost of the improvements we need to make. We will install new turf, tend to some maintenance of the existing play structure, add a bouldering wall, include seating, and install better lighting for safety. We’ll also improve drainage to avoid further damage.

When school resumes in the fall, the playground will be named in honor of Linda McGill.
