The Inspired Teaching School at 200 Douglas St is getting a new KaBoom! playground, and we need YOUR help!
Greetings from the Inspired Families Association!
The Inspired Families Association (IFA) is the PTA / PTO organization of the Inspired Teaching School, and we are THRILLED to move to our permanent home in the Edgewood community.
We recently got word that our school has been chosen as a site for a brand new KaBoom! playground, and we are looking for volunteers to help make Build Day a success! Our KaBoom! build's sponsor, the National Corporation for National and Community Service, will provide us with the bulk of the day's volunteers, but we are looking for ONE HUNDRED VOLUNTEERS to help out on Build Day. Volunteers do not to be skilled in construction or have any special tools; they just have to be enthusiastic, energetic, willing to work, and have fun, fun, fun! (And be at least 16 years of age).
What are some of the jobs you might do on build day? Mix cement, put together playground equipment, direct volunteers, paint, build benches, help with side projects, and haul mulch... LOTS of mulch :) We also have a limited number of volunteer slots available on the Planning Committee for people who want to help with volunteer recruitment and registration, food, public relations, and logistics.
Join us as an individual or come with an entire team. Ask your company if they will give hours worked credit for volunteering on this day as part of the September 11National Day of Service & Remembrance. We are looking for 100 volunteers for this project, and everyone must be pre-registered.
We’ll provide breakfast, lunch, beverages, and music, along with an opening and special closing ceremony at 2:30PM. The build will happen RAIN or SHINE!
