  Summer Watering and Weeding



Our landscape committee has made so many improvements to beautify our school, but we need your help to keep it that way over the summer!


Please sign up to help water and weed each week, starting May 22 through September 29. You can either sign up for the beds in the front of the school, or the pollinator and raised beds in the back.


We've made improvements to our watering system, so it will be easier this year. We will send an email to all volunteers with more detailed instructions by the last day of school.
