P.S.A: Ping Pong Table

A few weeks ago, the debate team traveled to Bartlett for a meet.  In the school, there was a lobby area that had three ping pong tables set up for kids to use while they didn’t have an event going on.  Josh Park “played for five hours.” This sparked his thought: how awesome it would be if Seward High had a ping pong table that the students could use.  

Park’s family wanted to get a ping pong table, but there was no room in their house. After they talked about it, they decided to donate a table to the school.  Park’s dad called the head of Subway, and asked if they would be willing to donate a table to the school in their name. Subway hadn’t done something like this in over two years, so they were all for it.  Park planned a meeting for his dad and Mr. Walker to discuss the logistics. The conclusion came to donating one ping pong table, six paddles, and a whole bunch of ping pong balls.

However, there are a few issues that need solutions before it arrives.  It needs a safe place to be stored, and an adult willing to unlock and lock it back up.  It has to be out of the way during classes, but will hopefully be able to be used before and after school, and during lunch.

If you strongly desire to have this ping pong table, please bring your solutions to Mr. Walker.  He is open to all ideas!
