Fundraising has begun for the Fountaindale Elementary School Courtyard Project.
The project, which will cost more than $70,000, will take an underutilized 10,000-square-foot space and transform it to an accessible area with a raised performance stage, seating, patio areas and utilities. To donate to this project, make checks payable to Fountaindale PTA, with "Courtyard" indicated in the memo line.
Donations can be sent to: Fountaindale PTA, 901 Northern Ave., Hagerstown, MD 21742. All donations are 100 percent tax-deductible.
