Throughout the school year, we will be working to schedule “school cleanup days” where we encourage all of the FALA families to come on down for a few hours to help get campus looking beautiful. Caring about our campus and its impact on the surrounding community is one of the best ways that we can show our school pride. And, it is a ton of fun.
We will work on developing projects with FALA students, teachers, and staff throughout the year to meet the evolving needs of the FALA campus. We will be doing our best to make these days as fun and family oriented as possible and include activities for all physical and skill levels.
Environmental & D.I.Y. Education
This year, we are also very proud to announce a partnership that our Administration has put together to not only cleanup campus, but to add an educational focus into the mix. The idea is that there will be a quick “class” or “instruction” about that day’s project prior to beginning so that Beautification Day participants can learn new skills.
For example, we just don’t want to pull all the plants up on campus calling them weeds…
“We actually need to leave root systems in place because they are holding soil in place. We will be cutting many of the stems of the plants into small pieces and create a natural mulch that is left on the ground. We shouldn’t rip things out, pile them up, and rake the ground and expose it. What some people consider our invasive plants are actually serving a purpose for us right now as transitional plants. We need them in place while we sow and plant native seed. As the native seeds take hold, then we can remove the invasive and non-native plants…” ~ Vrendi Will
