Newbury Elementary holds clean-up day Friday

NEWBURY— The Newbury Elementary School PTA’s “NES GROWS” Committee is holding a “Clean-Up and Play Day” on the school grounds on Friday from 5 to 8 p.m.

The event is free for NES families to help clean up and enjoy the schoolyard. Plants, baked goods, food and drinks will be sold and there will be a variety of activities and crafts for children to enjoy while work is being completed. NES assistant teacher Charlie LaBella will sell hot dogs from his hot dog cart.

In addition, local organizations and businesses will exhibit their community efforts, including the Northeast Mosquito Control, Parker River Wildlife Refuge, the Parker River Clean Watershed Association, and Merrohawke Nature School. Plant donations for planting in the schoolyard are being sought. All proceeds from the event will go towards improving the school property.

The event will occur rain or shine. In the case of bad weather, games and activities will take place inside, but outdoor clean up activities will occur regardless. Dress accordingly and be prepared to get dirty. Bring tools such as shovels, rakes, and gloves. Children in attendance must be accompanied by an adult.

NES GROWS (Growing Real Opportunities for Wonder in the Schoolyard) is a committee of the Newbury Elementary PTA. Contact nesgrows@gmail.com with questions or to volunteer at the event.
