The Sensory Courtyard at Syble Hopp School is now open for kids of all abilities. The $2 million facility was dedicated this week in a special ceremony to thank donors. The 10-thousand square-foot  facility includes a adaptive playground, sports court and walking path. "It's all about looking at how students can be healthy and active from ages 3-21," said Principal Abbie Nizzia.

 Nizzia says the Sensory Courtyard is the first of it's kind. The equipment specially chosen to challenge students, "We have seen an explosion in motor skills, we have so many students that are close to walking or able to walk with a walker, it's awesome," said Nizzia.

Nizzia says it wouldn't have been feasible without community donations. Companies like Vos Electric donated electrical work, "It's a really great cause, Syble Hopp has been great in the community," said President of Vos Tim Van Den Heuvel.
