College Park Elementary
1 day before
We missed the winter campus cleanup due to rain so hoping for a big group for the volunteer trash cleanup on Sunday at College Park Elementary. Please meet at 4:00 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.
No rain in the forecast!
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 - we 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?).
