Campus Beautification Day
A HUGE THANK YOU to all the parents, students, staff, and volunteers who helped clean up our school on Sunday, April 10th! Families showed up to help wash windows, pluck weeds, sweep the ground, and blow away debris! On top of that, a brand new edible gardening area was installed on our yard! The garden will be used for future lessons with classrooms, and students will eventually be able to taste and eat the vegetables that will grow in the garden! To everyone who helped, thank you for all your time and hard work!
