With the aim of making Lane Middle School more attractive, inside and out, a hearty band of volunteer's with the school's Parent Teacher Association (PTA) held a work party on Thursday morning, May 6, in the Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood.
"We have volunteers here cleaning up along the northern fence, along the front of the school, and new this year, we're cleaning up the area and putting new plants and pathways in the two indoor atrium areas," remarked Lane PTA Treasurer Jenna Jay. "Including kids, about 30 volunteers were working on the clean-up project, across the campus."
Lane PTA Secretary Esther Crowell-Duncan remarked, "The atriums haven't been used in years, and are overgrown; now they're beautiful spaces where both teachers and students can go to relax for a little while."
"It's important for the school to look nice and be presentable," Ms. Jay explained. "These improvements help our kids feel better about the school; in fact, all of us feel better about a school that looks better!"
