Ahh, back-to-school. A new school year and a fresh start. Another chance at the first impression. New shirt, new pants and cool kicks. Clean backpack full of sharp pencils, colorful binders and potential. But what about the school itself? What is the first impression it will make to it’s students? Southern Exposure Landscape Management had the opportunity to join Grace Community Church of Greensboro, NC in their service project last Saturday helping Clara J. Peck Elementary school make a great impression by cleaning up and beautifying their grounds. Tax dollars only stretch so far in Guilford county and it’s much better allocated inside the classroom than outside the building. The only way this kind of work gets done is through volunteers. About 40 people from Grace Community Church and Southern Exposure spent Saturday morning pulling weeds, pruning shrubs, trimming trees, removing poison ivy, pressure washing and cleaning up the campus. Thirty yards of mulch provided by Southern Exposure was spread by kids and adults around the perimeter of the local school building and the various mulch beds. Flowers were planted by the entries and front sign. It was a great way to involve the entire family in serving their community. We hope the kids of Peck Elementary School have a great school year!
Fun day getting Peck Elementary school ready for returning students.
