Beautification Day will be held this year on Saturday, August 21st, 2010, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. This annual event was established in 2005 as a citywide “spruce up” of all DC public school buildings in preparation for the first day of school. Beautification efforts will include landscaping, trash pick-up, light painting, planting flowers, and other external beautification efforts.
Here at Walker Jones Education Campus, volunteers will have a choice of pitching in on the farm or tidying up plant beds around the entrance and playing fields of the campus. We want everything looking it’s best when the students arrive on Monday for the first day of school. We also can’t wait to see their faces when they realize that the farm growing on the corner belongs to them. So feel like a little gardening workout? We will be most appreciative of your support of our great kids. Sign up here or just stop by. We will be happy to see you!
