Fall Clean-up Day

Interested TNSM friends, families and staff are invited to help with fall clean-up 8am until noon.

We will be spreading mulch in both the preprimary and elementary woods (50yrds), cleaning out the mansion flower bed along the teacher parking lot, and digging out the corner of the preprimary woods where the rain runoff washes down the mulch and sand.

Tools for parents to bring would be: rakes (leaf and garden) snow or grain shovels, pitch forks, tarps, wheel barrows or garden carts etc.

Bagels, fruit, coffee etc will be provided. Contact Barclay Green if you can help, so he’ll have enough snacks for everyone. (Current TNSM parents can sign up to attend via an email that was sent to them from SignUpGenius).
