When students at Yale Elementary return to school this fall, they’ll enjoy a new beautiful landscape that also functions as an outdoor classroom. The entire rear face of the school now features new trees, plants, walking paths and even sitting areas. Students will find even more magic in reading their favorite books in a setting like this.
Volunteers with Children’s Hospital Colorado made the landscape transformation possible. Dozens of hospital employees dedicated a day to digging, planting and beautifying the school’s outer appearance. This is the 11th consecutive year Children’s Hospital Colorado staff have dedicated their time and talents to sprucing up our schools. Thanks to this amazing partnership, APS has saved more than $1.4 million in school makeovers!
As the APS 2020: Shaping the Future strategic plan highlights, one of our core beliefs is that community partnerships provide vital resources and opportunities for students and families. We thank each volunteer for their service. We are also grateful to our sponsors who helped make this project a reality.
