October 14th 9am-12pm: Campus Beautification Day

We need parents and children to come help us re-plant portions of the Canyon Rim Native Plant Garden near the upper grades playground. We will also be sweeping, cleaning the lunch arbor area, and lots more fun tasks!   Early birds will get to make native seed balls, which is a super fun (muddy) activity great for kids.

Bring tools marked with your name, gloves, shovels, & brooms.

Ensure you have plenty of water and sunscreen!

Kids can make native seed balls in the morning. Planting will occur at 11:30 am!
