Aldine ISD Board Members joined Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, second from left, and Target Group Vice President of Houston stores John Sheehan, far right, at a kickoff ceremony on Wednesday, June 7 prior to the start of the KaBoom playground build day at Thompson Elementary School. AISD Trustees who attended the kickoff event were Assistant Board Secretary Paul Shanklin, Board President Dr. Viola M. Garcia and Board Member Connie Esparza.

More than 200 volunteers from Target, Thompson Elementary and the community joined forces to build a new playground at the school. Thompson students designed the playground. The playground will not only serve Thompson students, but will also serve five neighboring Aldine ISD schools.

Dr. Garcia, Hopkins and Sheehan delivered remarks during the kickoff ceremony.
