HELP Day PosterOur school community will join together on Saturday, November 6th, from 9am-11am, to complete some beautification projects around the exterior of our school. We will spread mulch, clean up flower beds, clean up our school garden, and work on some various other projects. If you would like to help, please bring any yard tools you have available (hedgetrimmers, pitchforks, wheelbarrows, rakes, shovels, etc.). We are excited to see our community come together and make Ellen Woodside look pretty!
