Even though school is out for the summer, Leschi Elementary stayed very busy this month! From getting the garden prepared for summer planting, to giving the walls a new coat of paint, and cataloging the fiction books in the library. With the help from some Googlers and Seattle Works, the school was able to make all their projects a reality.
GoogleServe volunteers assisted the summer school participants with weeding, churning compost into garden soil, building trellises, and making a sustainable water bottle irrigation system! The library is also in order after their visit. They have recorded the fiction books into to the school catalogue, making access to the library resources easier for teachers. The school is organized, cleaned, and repainted. What a perfect way to start the 2016 school year!
Googlers volunteer all year, but in June they celebrate collectively during GoogleServe to help their favorite organization. The volunteer campaign has done over 800 projects nation-wide just this year! They will make their way back to Seattle next year, serving the community with helping hands once again.
