This Friday, folks at Piñon Elementary will put their backs into some shovel work to beautify the campus and celebrate Arbor Day.
“We are having a school-wide event for campus beautification that includes rotational activities for students with everything from helping improve our field, a walk a thon for our track fundraiser, planting trees an hedges to PEEC activities,” Principal Megan Lee said.
PTO President Melanie McKinley is thrilled about the event and their sponsors.
“We are so grateful to KNMB for its generosity. Especially during these tough economic times, landscaping becomes a very low priority,” she said.
“However, giving the children someplace beautiful to be during recesses helps to center them for later learning. The shade the trees will provide in the future will give the kids a cool place to be on a hot day.”
The PTO has selected red twig dogwoods to plant that will provide beauty all year long with green leaves in the spring, white flowers in summer, red leaves in fall, and bright red twigs in the winter.
“I believe that beauty begets beauty,” McKinley said. “What KNMB does by offering these grants is to start the process of beautification that will continue for years to come.”
