A huge Thank You to Mr. Besinaiz and his Comcast team as well as to all the community members that came and volunteered their time.  Comcast provided all the supplies and materials for this day: 5 trees and butterfly garden were planted, US map painted; crosswalk painted, bark in the flowerbeds, wall balls painted, garden boxes filled with dirt, and backpack racks for all the classrooms!


Comcast also provided breakfast, lunch and a t-shirt for everyone!
