Pack 859 cleaned up Indian Creek Elementary. Knocked down spider webs and swept the entire school. Cleaned up around the entrance to the school.
The pack did their first project for our adopted school East Cheatham ElementarySchool. We cleaned out grass tore up dirt and planted flowers around the school Marquee. Everyone had a good time and the school loved it.
April 25 – We had 10 scouts from Pack 343 plus a handful of parents and siblings volunteering their time to clean up our elementary school grounds. Our afternoon started by picking up the trash around the grounds and then we did some landscape maintenance. It was too cold for us to do some new plantings.
Pack 456 was featured in the local paper after finishing their first BSAdopt-A-School project. The article references the Adopt-A-School program and tells about their project. http://www.thefranklinnewspost.com/article.cfm?ID=24771
Pack 474 is comprised of boys from Kent, WA at Millennium, Meadow Ridge and Pine Tree Elementary. Our Adopt-A-School project this year is to help our friends at Millennium – The “Trailblazers”.
One of the best features of our school is a nature trail on our school grounds. It is a looped trail that has an outdoor learning center, wetlands and is filled with native plants and wildlife. Our Principal, Ms Janes would reward our monthly Virtue students with a hike through the trail. It was used by the older classes for science projects and was a highlight of the community.
Several years ago, it was destroyed by a terrible winter storm. Trees were blown down over the pathway, making it impassable. Neglect allowed scratchy blackberry bushes and other weeds to grow up and choke out some of the native trees.
Our project and promise to Millennium is to restore the Millennium Trail back to even better condition. We are proud to put our hands, hearts and heads to work to make it better than it was before.
Pack 104, Den 11 came out to celebrate Earth Day at Sternberger Elementary by planting shrubs near the car rider lines, mulching the area, planting flowers by the school sign and picking up trash. The boys spent over two hours working hard!
On April 22nd we finished our project of putting in a garden around our new school sign. Some of the cub scout families worked over the weekend removing sod and building the garden. On Earth Day we planted all the new plants in the garden and picked up trash all over the school grounds. Our first project turned out great and our school is very happy with the new garden. .
42 cub scouts from Pack 558 in Houston, along with their parents, helped clean up the school grounds after the school’s spring carnival. The carnival was a large event, and there was trash everywhere. The scouts cleaned the grounds, carried tables and equipment, and helped deflate the jump-house (this was a favorite). Perfect weather and popsicles afterward made this project fun!
April 17, 2013 Pack 346 sorts clothing from a clothes drive held by Cotton Indian Elementary. The clothing will be donated to homeless children in Henry County.
Troop 42′s adopted school had a school carnival on the 12th of April. The carnival included indoor and outdoor activities with food and candy and games at different areas. On the morning of April 13th, 16 members of Troop 42 along with adult leaders assisted in cleaning up the school grounds from the fun the previous night. About 2 hours were spent by these volunteers to clean the grounds, completing our 3rd adopt a school event of the year.
