OLD TOWN – Students at the Leonard Middle School will be holding their first-ever community service day on June 13, and they’re seeking input on what folks would like to see done for projects.
According to LMS teacher Shianne Priest, the entire student body – about 300 children will be taking part in the project, which will probably take place about three hours in the morning on the 13th. Students can’t work with chemicals or dangerous equipment, but just about anything else that is age appropriate goes. Work will be done in the three RSU 34 member communities – Old Town, Bradley and Alton.
“We’re looking for ideas from the community for things we wouldn’t have thought,” said Priest. “For instance, maybe there’s a park bench with splinters that needs to be sanded, or maybe there’s some place that could use a little beautification We’re open to any ideas”
Priest asks that anyone with any possible ideas email them to her by Tuesday, May 27 at[email protected]. Staff and students will review all ideas, then the projects to be done will be selected prior to the event.
