Field Update: June 15, 2016

The Turf Field is in the works! We have met our fundraising goal thanks to the generosity of this entire community. Thank you all! This was a huge effort and we appreciate everyone’s hard work.

On June 14th, the Board of Education gave the green light to the construction phase, and all necessary permits have been secured. We hope to have approval from the County Council in July, which would allow construction to begin later that month.  We will be sending out status updates throughout the summer. We hope that construction will be underway when our kids return to school in the fall. We don’t yet know what the logistics will be during the construction phase so please watch for email communications from the Somerset listserv for more information.* If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to email This email will be monitored by the Somerset Foundation and the PTA. We will answer questions as quickly as possible.

We look forward to sending you updates and information, and to having a brand new field soon!
