Let's Tidy the Outdoor Classroom!


Friday, August 27, 9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

Sligo Creek ES and Silver Spring International MS are lucky to have a large Outdoor Classroom, located in the interior courtyard of the shared building. After the long pandemic closure, it needs our attention! We look forward to students being able to use this outdoor space as much as possible.
No gardening experience is necessary to help; there will be knowledgeable Outdoor Classroom volunteers onsite. Jobs will include sweeping pathways, bagging debris, removing trash, pruning bushes, and most of all, removing weeds!

When: Friday, August 27, between 9:30 – 1:30. Come for as long as you can within this timeframe.


How to Get There: Come to the Schuyler Road side of Sligo Creek ES, through the teachers’ parking lot. A glass door will be open beside the cafeteria entrance.


To Bring: Please bring your own work gloves, brooms, weeding and pruning tools, snacks and water. It will be hot so please do remember to bring enough water! We have some limited tools on site for volunteers’ use. If you have yard waste bags and are willing to donate them, please bring those, too!


Questions: Email Debbie Boger at Debbie.boger@gmail.com.
