Beautification day

DC Public Schools is again sponsoring a city-wide “Beautification Day” to help spruce up our schools on the Saturday before classes begin. This second annual Beautification Day will be Saturday, August 26th from 8:00 am until 1:00 pm.

ANC Commission 1 includes 7 DCPS schools that will be participating in this second annual Beautification Day: Cardozo Sr. High School, Banneker Sr. High School, Garnet-Patterson Middle School, Meyer Elementary, KC Lewis Elementary (swing space for HD Cooke), Gage-Eckington Elementary, and Cleveland Elementary. We are looking for volunteers at our local schools.

The efforts will concentrate on weeding, mulching, sweeping and raking. Individual schools may have additional projects for volunteers. Participants should bring whatever tools they may have: brooms, rakes, trimmers, etc. but much of the work simply requires willing hands and enthusiasm. Gloves and hats and water bottles are advised.

As volunteer coordinators for Ward I, we are hoping to identify captains at each school who can help direct the work to be done at each site. A meeting for "captains" or anyone else interested in upkeep at our school facilities is scheduled for:

Thursday, August 10, 6:30 pm
1816 12th Street NW
1st floor conference room
Street parking or Metro - 2 blocks south of the U Street Cardozo Metro
