Community volunteers are sought to help Tucson Unified School District freshen up the Davis Bilingual Elementary Magnet School campus, 500 W. St. Mary's Road, on Feb. 8 from 8 a.m. to noon. District leaders will work alongside school staff, parents, students and others in bringing some added sparkle to the historic school.
Davis is the second site chosen for the Adopt-A-School program. TUSD launched Adopt-A-School in November to bring together district employees, parents and members of the community to take on projects not covered under general maintenance. Holladay Magnet School was the first school to undergo a transformation.
Work at Davis will include painting in hallways, repainting sidewalk games such as hopscotch and sprucing up the school grounds and gardens.
Volunteers don't need to have experience, just a willingness to help. Bring work gloves and simple garden tools if you would like. TUSD operations staff members will be on hand to guide the work.
The Educational Enrichment Foundation, 3809 E. Third St., is accepting financial support and tool donations for the Adopt-A-School program. Call 325-8688 for more information.
For more information about the program, contact Adopt-A-School project manager James Baker, at 225-4689 or James.Baker@tusd1.org.
