College Park Elementary
1 day before
UPDATE on SUNDAY JAN 6: this event is cancelled due to rain and will be rescheduled for another time. Thank you.
To kick off the new year with a pristine College Park campus we are hosting a volunteer trash cleanup on Sunday. Please meet at 3:00 pm in the staff parking lot off Poplar Ave. My wife, Joanne Adamkewicz, will lead the group and provide plastic gloves, trash bags plus snack and drink afterwards. All you need to do is show up.
We will work as a group and circle the campus (including Turnbull) in a counter clockwise fashion (Poplar -> Eldorado -> Indian -> Humboldt -> Poplar). If you arrive later, just circle around until you find the group. This usually takes about an hour or maybe an hour and a quarter.
This is a great way to meet fellow College Park families and to build a strong campus community. Kids love zooming around the outside of the campus with their friends picking up trash.
There is rain in the forecast. As long as it is not raining hard at 3 pm we will start. We've done this job in a light mist before and it was a blast. Wear appropriate clothing. Call Joanne at 415 336 6085 if looking for confirmation due to inclement weather.
Although our school staff and the district do a terrific job of keeping our campus clean, there is no cleanup support for the area outside of the school gates. Over time, a fair amount of trash accumulates, and we have quarterly volunteer cleanup days to help keep this part of our school grounds clean and as a goodwill gesture to the neighbors of the College Park campus.
All you need to do is show up - I will provide trash bags and disposable gloves. All ages are welcome (although younger children should be supervised by an accompanying adult). We are happy to sign community service forms for those who are volunteering (any Scouts out there needing volunteer hours?).
