Outdoor Environment Upgrade

We are proud to announce that the outside of the Foxworthy campus got refreshed with a few more plants. It was a lot to be done and it took a big group of volunteers many hours of work, but in the end two 10 gal. trees, one 5 gal. bush & two 1 gal. bushes have been planted. Also, mulch got spread by the new school sign and by the courtyard area next to the office and infant community windows.

Many thanks to all the wonderful families that volunteer to help us, and to our staff members & their families for joining the team. Also, we would like to thank Our City Forest who delivered the trees and brought a large group of high school volunteers. They also brought plenty of tools for everyone, making our work much easier.
