Woodrow Wilson School's new playground was officially celebrated on Monday, December 19, 2016. Staff from the school joined with staff from NEJ, Inc.to cut a red ribbon near the new playscape. Earlier that morning, NEJ helped provide students at the school with a visit from Santa. Each student went home with a stuffed toy beagle, with many of the younger students instantly naming and cuddling the life-sized toys.
NEJ is the school's community partner. The company, founded by Ed Mascolo twenty-five years ago, works with retailers and factories to market excess inventory. The company adopted the school several years ago and has since funded many improvements at the school,
