We have been working with the UWW Student Optimist organization and Kim Adams's Service Learning and Leadership Seminar class to create a plan to spruce up the back patio off the LMC. Funds for this project have been generously donated by the Optimists from the proceeds from this year's Trivia Night.
Thanks to the hard work of the students and lots of input from our own middle school students, the plan is to refresh the mulch beds, plant some perennials, and buy some new outdoor chairs and tables, along with a bench around one of the trees (possibly). This will make a welcoming outdoor space for both individual reading and work time, as well as an outdoor classroom where you can take your students.
To accomplish the actual work, four after-school work days have been scheduled as an opportunity for students to roll up their sleeves and work with university students (and adult supervisors) to help with landscaping.
- Thurs, April 12
- Friday, April 13
- Thurs, April 19
- Friday, April 20
Work will start right after school and we'll quit around 6pm.
