Students at the Cannon Beach Academy got to slide, jump and climb for the first time on the school’s new playground equipment Thursday, Oct. 18. The equipment was made possible by long time charter school supporter and board member Barb Knop, who donated the equipment in honor of her late husband, Mike Knop.

“Mike loved to play. He made play a part of his day every day of his life,” Knop said while watching the students run up and down the play set. “I try to honor him everyday day, and I thought this would be a perfect way.”
