Parents of the Schools, a grassroots organization, recently coordinated its third annual school beautification project. On June 15 volunteers from the group joined other community members planting flowers and cleaning up the landscape at E.A. Gibson Elementary School in Danville. This project was a collaboration between several organizations: Danville Public Schools, Boys & Girls Club of the Danville Area (Chatham) and Parents of the Schools. A $500 grant was utilized via Middle Border Forward to purchase supplies. Parents of the Schools’ mission is to increase parent, family and community engagement within local school systems. For more information or to become involved, email or join the Facebook group under “Parents of the Schools.”
