Last month we got a lot done.  This time we need to finish what we started.   There is always trash accumulating on our school grounds that needs to be cleaned up.  Pressure washing of the Play Grounds, Blowing debris and dirt of of the upper fields playground and lower playground, painting of picnic tables and our biggest item that needs to be tackled is replacement of 10 planter boxes around the school campus – the existing ones are falling apart and really an eye sore.

Please bring your tools and help us tackle these items this Saturday!
