About Make a Difference Day
Our goal is simple. To unite people, on one day of service, to make a difference in their communities.
Acacia’s Make a Difference Day Fall 2015 was FANTASTIC!
Thank you for all your support on our first ever Make a Difference Day. We had 60 volunteers stop by on Saturday to contribute to the event. We had LDS church members, parents, students, staff members, and community members all participate for 4 hours. We were able to add a crosswalk to our parking lot, add two more handicap spots, repaint most of the curbs and arrows in the parking lot. We were able to pull most of the weeds in the outdoor classroom. We painted the basketball poles and backboards. It was a very successful day at Acacia. We planted one new tree and two new shrubs near the front office.
Our district office donated paint to get our projects done. ACE hardware donated spray cans, stencils, paint, and paint brushes. Parents donated paint brushes. Starbucks donated coffee. Thank you to the teachers who donated breakfast items. Thank you to PTA for donating pizza for lunch.
We will be having another Make a Difference Day in the spring to get some additional projects completed before our 25th anniversary celebration. We will let you know the date so you can mark your calendars.
