Local Schools Get a Facelift Thanks to University of the Rockies
Volunteers complete various projects to create a more inviting learning environment for students
University of the Rockies volunteers, armed with work gloves, shovels, garden rakes and sunscreen, cleaned up two local schools over the weekend in an effort to show the Colorado Springs community how much they care.
“This was a perfect opportunity to donate our time and resources to help make these schools a more inviting place that fosters learning in our community. It was also a great team building event too,” said Dr. Robert Edelbrock, vice president and campus director at University of the Rockies.
On Saturday, June 2, employees, faculty and their families were dispersed to two area schools, Stratmoor Hills Elementary and Pikes Peak Elementary, to assist Community Partnership for Child Development (CPCD) as they replaced and repainted the stairs and decks of some of their modular classrooms. A group of volunteers also helped with a landscaping project at the CPCD Central Office.
CPCD is focused on preparing children and their families for success and life through various development programs.
