School and district officials, along with the school’s namesake, visited the Alan Shawn Feinstein Elementary School in Providence on June 10 to dedicate a playground construction project that began with a $25,000 donation from Feinstein in 2013. With that funding, plus donated materials and labor, the school has built a vibrant, welcoming playspace on its small swath of land at the intersection of Broad Street and Eddy Street. A plaque was installed dedicating the playspace to the school’s “junior scholars.”
