Retired Cottage Hill principal honored

Gail Maloney, recently retired after 16 years as principal of Cottage Hill School, was the special guest of honor at the “Playground Dedication Ceremony” held this week at the school.

The new playground was dedicated to Maloney in recognition of her work for the project. The rubberized fall surface, made from over 1,500 recycled tires, and the enlarged play structure were procured with a $25,000 grant written by Cottage Hill School and Pleasant Ridge School District staffs and funded by the California Integrated Waste Management Board. Another $17,683 was contributed from money awarded to Cottage Hill as a result of student achievement on state testing.

The Cottage Hill Parents’ Club contributed $4,747, and the balance of about $33,000 was funded by the Pleasant Ridge School District.
