Community Green-Up Day
Saturday, May 16th, 2009
9:00 - 4:00 (Rain Date Sunday, May 17)
Green-Up Day at Briscoe is a coordinated effort to implement a formal and sustainable landscaping design to best enhance Briscoe's classic architecture and make the grounds as inviting as possible, while meeting true middle school needs. Thoughtful modifications will accentuate the unique details of the engravings, veterans’ memorials and façade of this 86 year old landmark. Already, 9 new trees have been donated to the effort, including American Elms given by our elementary schools and individual families. Many more items remain on the wish list
Anyone who is interested in rolling up their sleeves and lending a hand is welcomed to join in. We have in place a very clear landscaping and grounds improvement plan but we need YOUR help to make it a reality!
Bring your kids, your friends, your gloves, your water bottle and your LABELED yard tools. Get ready to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty to make Briscoe as beautiful as possible! Stay for an hour or for the whole day. Drop in and out between sporting and other commitments.
Want to help but can’t be on site? Consider making a contribution to be used towards fulfilling the improvement plan’s specific wish list. We will gladly accept checks or gift certificates to local greenhouses such as Leonard’s, Sweeney’s, Ward’s, Chapman’s, Corliss, Northeast Nursery, or where ever you shop. Send to

(checks payable to Briscoe PTO, “Grounds” in memo). !
