Service Learning Project - Leopards by Nature

Leopards by NatureOn Tuesday and Wednesday, March 16th & 17th, all WSMS students will be participating in our Annual Spring Service Learning Project.   In an effort to beautify WSMS and to encourage student ownership, this years project will take place on campus. 

 

What to wear? Come to school ready to roll up your sleeves and get dirty. Please wear Leopards by Nature t-shirt and comfortable pants. If your child did not purchase a t-shirt, a  WSMS or Lovejoy t-shirt is preferred, comfortable closed-toed shoes (they might get dirty...if you have boots or old athletic shoes, that's perfect) and a jacket/sweatshirt. We will provide gardening gloves for all students.

 

Did you sign up to donate items on our Wish List? If so, please bring all donations that weren't already shipped to WSMS office by tomorrow, Friday, February 28th. 
 
Still needed:
We still need Volunteers to help lead student work groups! Please consider helping us for a 1/2 or full day. 
 
Rakes - Have a rake at home we can borrow next week? We need more...If you put your last name on duct tape on handle, we'll make sure you get it back after service learning. Please bring any labeled rakes to front office Friday, Feb. 28th or Monday, March 2nd! 
 
In case of inclement weather, we will reschedule our service learning project to the week after Spring Break. Let's hope for good weather next week!

This year's theme is Leopards By Nature.  As part of this campus wide service learning day, we are encouraging students to purchase a Leopards By Nature T-Shirt for $12.00.  All profits from T-Shirt sales will assist with the funding of purchasing compost, topsoil, and native plants and flowers. If you would like to purchase a T-Shirt for this event, please see the link below.  In addition, please see below to volunteer for these service learning days, as well as an opportunity to donate items through our Amazon Smile Wish List.
