Campus Beautification Day
Sat, Jan 20 9:00am-12:00pm
Holmes Elementary
1 day before, 4 days before

The PTA has kindly arranged another Campus Beautification Day! 

 

Please join us for as long (or little) as you'd like to lend a hand to make our campus as beautiful as it can be.  It really is such a great opportunity to teach community volunteerism to our kids and the best part is that they go to school the next week and see the changes they made!  They are so proud of themselves and strive to keep the campus clean because they have put in the elbow grease.  See the list of tasks below and sign up if you are interested.  Bring your shovel, rake, broom, gloves, etc.  

 

The event is from 9:00 AM-NOON and you can arrive and leave anytime depending on what works best for your schedule.

We hope you can join us!

Refurbish the Canyon Rim Native Plant Garden entrance sign Signed Up: 1 / 3

There is a dilapidated wooden entrance sign for the Canyon Rim Native Plant Garden, over by the upper grades playground. This sign needs to be repainted and reinstalled at the entrance to the garden. If you sign up for this job, please take a look at the sign before you come, figure out how you want to paint the sign, and then on Jan 20, please bring paintbrushes, drop clothes, paint, etc. to re-paint the sign. Then, if there is time, if would be great if we could place the repainted sign in a couple of small holes with a touch of concrete in the holes to secure the sign. A small bag of concrete would be plenty. Contact Makela at campus@holmespta.org for additional details.
