    Please join the QAE Green Team for some weekend fun taking care of our school grounds.

    When: Saturday, Dec. 7th, 12 - 2 p.m.

    Where: QAE!

    Who: Everyone! It would be great to get 25 people!

    Sign-up: Email garden1@qaeptsa.org "school clean up" in the subject line and state how many people you'll bring. This will help make sure we have enough supplies. 

    Come for a bit or the whole time. We will rake leaves, collect garbage, recycling and compost from Boston, Bigelow, Newton, 4th and inside our gates where we play. There will be hot cocoa and cookies. 

    Cleaning up, raking and collecting leaves from our site helps the environment in so many ways. Just a few examples:

    • Great opportunity to affirm lessons about the importance of trees in our community and our lives.
    • Getting students active outdoors, in fresh air, coupled with stewardship of our school yard.
    • Help our District Grounds Staff rake leaves off sidewalks and driveways to make our school grounds safe - and in the process, avoid the pollutants generated by gas leaf blowers.
    • Collect and stockpile leaves to use for your compost bin, worm bin, winter-bedding over garden plots and/or our school's landscape beds.
    • Admire the beauty of fall colors, enjoy the smell of crisp air.
