Community Cares Day

Project Community Care is a wonderful opportunity for community members to help beautify our school grounds before students return for the school year! Volunteers come together to complete tasks from weeding, to picking up litter, to spreading mulch around flower beds. This year (2022), we are recruiting extra volunteers to help us prepare the school garden and care for Ella’s Memorial Garden. Together we can grow a sense of community and school stewardship.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome. Your time and energy will have a direct impact on students, families, teachers, and the neighborhood. PPS appreciates all of the effort and enthusiasm that goes into making this event possible!

Community Cares Day will take place on Saturday, August 27th 2022 from 9am-12pm at the Fernwood campus.

We need people (adults and kids) to volunteer. There will be volunteer leads outside Fernwood to help point you in the right direction.

Please sign up to help make the schools sparkle before school begins! ALL are welcome - this is a great opportunity to connect with others before the school year starts. 

No background check is required for this community event. All ages are welcome.

  • wheelbarrows
  • mowers/weed whackers
