Community Care Day

Our spring Community Care Day was a great success! 

About 40 volunteers showed up on Saturday, May 6th, 2023 to spruce up the school grounds. We weeded, trimmed, mulched, and even planted a few flowers along the front, back, and side of the school.

Next Community Care Day will be just before school starts in Fall 2023.

Keep an eye out for the official announcement! 


We need both adults and kids to volunteer. All ages are welcome.

Strong arms are needed for shoveling mulch, directing wheelbarrows, and carrying bags of plant clippings.


Please check back for sign ups closer to the start of school in Fall 2023. 

What to Bring

Everyone should bring work gloves and appropriate footwear and clothing.

The school has some tools, but we are more productive if you can bring some from home. The following would be particularly helpful:

  • Weeding Tools (most needed)
  • Shovels  (most needed)
  • Garbage pickers  (most needed)
  • Buckets
  • Hard rakes
  • Leaf rakes
  • Wheelbarrows
  • Mowers/weed whackers
  • Pruners, clippers, and/or shears
  • Brooms
  • and anything else that makes you comfortable and motivated to work!

Please label all tools with your name and phone number.

What to Expect Day Of

  1. Check in at the front of the school. There will be volunteer leads to help point you in the right direction. All the weeding has to be done at the beginning before we lay the mulch down.
  2. We'll have tape and markers in case you forget to label your tools.
  3. Minimal snacks will be provided.
