Following an eight-month fund-raising blitz, one of Canton’s elementary schools cut the ribbon for a new playground and outdoor classroom last week. Peter Boucher, principal of Lieutenant Peter M. Hansen Elementary School, said the school community came together behind the projects under the name “Team Hansen.” Sharon Stemm, fund-raising director of the Canton Association of Parents and Teachers, raised about $10,000 with a pair of fitness fund-raisers, then the Bank of Canton donated $10,000, according to Boucher. The Haggerty family in Canton donated $45,000 toward the project. At the same time, the school applied for and received a $5,000 grant from Lowe’s Home Improvement in Dedham for an outdoor classroom. The classroom has stone benches and a slate that can be used as a chalkboard, Boucher said.
