Grounds Clean Up Sunday November 24th, 9am – 1pm
Grounds cleanup happens twice a year. It’s remarkable what two days a year can do to make the Key grounds beautiful for our kids and the Key School staff. The fall clean-up is Sunday, November 24th from 9 am to 1 pm. Mark off an hour or half hour of your time, and bring your rakes, gloves, and leaf blowers. A pizza party with popsicles will be awarded to the classroom with the most volunteers who work 2 or more hours!
