Garden Work Parties and Watercolor Workshops

June 18, 2010

Our first Lewis Garden Work Party / Watercolor Workshop was held on Thursday, June 17. Eight parents came out to help weed our garden beds. During the work party they focused on cleaning up and planting the east side garden bed outside of Mrs. Keefer and Ms. Jen’s classrooms

We have another date scheduled for next Wednesday, June 23rd from 10 am-12 pm. . Meet us first in the Lewis Garden by the new cob bench, we will gather tools and supplies, and head out to the garden together. Next Wednesday we will be working in the Outdoor Center area around the outdoor classroom and new cob bench. Individuals, families and kids all welcome!

    Wednesday, June 23rd – 10 am-Noon

NewImage The original wood playground at Lewis Elementary has to be decommissioned for safety reasons and is being replaced with a nature-based play space. There will be logs for sitting on and jumping to, a colorful and fully ADA accessible “river” walkway for all to access the play space, permanent all-weather instruments and more! Portland Public Schools has committed to fund the decommissioning and accessibility features, Lewis PTA has raised $15,000, Lewis Students have raised $1,500, and we need your help to make this a creative and exciting new play space for the entire community to enjoy.
