IF IT RAINS ON COMMUNITY SERVE DAY, please contact your Site Leader for alternate sites that will need us.

Del Mar Heights School fosters academic excellence, environmental stewardship, creative expression and social responsibility. These qualities encourage our children to set goals, dream big and be confident they can achieve those goals and dreams! Our school community feels providing an environment where students can extend their learning to the outdoors is an important part of building these character traits in our students.

Join us as we take part in this community effort to continue improving the beauty and educational value of The Heights Gardens. Our goals this year include:
o Take apart and sort micro-irrigation tubing and parts
o Sand and paint bench in the Kindergarten garden
o Line greenhouse with hardware cloth (to keep out the critters!)
o Clean adjacent slope of brush and trash
o Make new tree signs (we may like to have large rocks painted vs. signs)
o Spread compost
o Remove old backstop fence
o Set approximately 6 fence posts
o Rework compost bins
o Build raised flower bed covers
o Weather seal counter tops

This is a great family project, as there is no minimum age requirement. There is something for everyone to do!

Dress for a morning in the sunshine – your Community Serve Day T-shirt, pants that you can get dirty, sunscreen, a hat and closed-toe shoes. If you have gardening gloves, shovels, rakes, clippers or loppers to use or to share, please label them with your name and bring them for the day. Don't forget to bring some water!
