Two school events coming up are open to the community, not just students and families:
SCHMITZ PARK OUTDOOR MOVIE RESCHEDULED: No repeat of last Friday’s rain – so THIS Friday (September 13th) is the rescheduled outdoor-movie fundraiser at Schmitz Park Elementary. The school’s PTA invites you to come see “Epic” on a big screen at the SP playground. Gate opens 6:15 pm, movie at dusk (around 7:30 pm), $3/person (kids 3 and under are free), pizza and snacks/drinks will be sold ($2 or less). Proceeds will help support the 4th-grade outdoor-education experience at Islandwood.
STEM PAINTING PARTY: K-5 STEM at Boren PTA president Robin Graham shares the announcement:
This coming Saturday, September 14th, 9:30 am, we will be painting (and re-painting) our school playground (assuming good weather) at Boren on Delridge. We’ll be adding two new four-square courts, shifting the kickball diamond so it’s usable again, hopefully adding a wall ball court or two, and repainting the existing four-square, track, basketball keys, and hopscotch. With the portables gone, we want to use our new-found space! Also we have to remove moss and encroaching sod from the walk along the west side of parking lot, to remove bush on SE corner of exit driveway and to paint a limit line just east of driveway crosswalk so drivers know where to stop.
They’d love to have lots of help – sign up NOW, here. Whether you can or can’t be there in person, donations are needed too – see the list ahead:
Striping paint – WHITE spray paint in a canister that is used in striper machine. We go through this fast!
Behr Porch and Floor Paint in the following colors (please donate only these colors and this type of paint for our playground project):
Berry Syrup S-G-650 (purple)
California Poppy S-G-160 (pinkish red)
Limeade S-G-420 (bright green)
Citrus Splash S-G-370 (yellow)
Intense Teal S-G-490 (teal)
Jazz Blue S-G-560 (royal blue)
Pumpkin Patch S-H-250 (dark orange)
We could also use:
Paint roller Heads – the school district will loan us several long roller handles to make the four square painting easier.
Packets of “GRIT” to mix with the paint – keeps kids from slipping.
Paint trays (or bring your own if you are coming to volunteer)
Chalk Line (we can return it if you when we’re finished if you’d like to loan us one)
Five new basketball nets! Last year, someone was kind enough to donate five of the red/white/blue – was a nice splash of color – and even brought a ladder to install them.
Wood Chips for the “mud pit” in the corner by the tree.
It would be great if we could get several gallons of each color donated so we’re able to paint several coats – weather and kids wear these down fast!
Boren is at 5950 Delridge Way SW.
