Open Window School Positively Impacts Community

Twice a year, Parent Association PiP (Positive Impact Project) Co-Chairs organize community service events. This spring, the weekend before Earth Day, about 40 Open Window parents, kids and staff members met up to help with a native planting project at a nearby trailhead replacing previous non-native plants with native plants that can survive without additional water, maintenance and fertilizers, which will ultimately have a positive impact on our environment. After the trail work, volunteers were treated to lunch and a tree planting ceremony with city council members, various kid friendly Earth Day/Arbor Day exhibits and activities at the local park.

Does your school do something similar?
