  Original Published: 9/19/2013Butler Elementary School is improving its playground to make it handicap-accessible. An official ribbon cutting ceremony was held Wednesday at the school at 125 College St. Principal Matthew Caputo said the playground costs over $62,000. He said the playground was made possible through a $25,000 grant from Clorox and donations from the community. The playground was built using accessible features so children of all abilities could play alongside each other. "One marquee feature of the playground is the Cruiser designed to make kids with and without disabilities can be on the playground together," Caputo said. The playground also includes a battery operated piano and a teeter-totter.  "These things were put together not only to help kids with disabilities but also our typical students to help their social, mental, and physical development," Caputo said.
