Inspired by Community Serve Day, an annual event held in August, the Frank Love PTA decided to take it to a new level in their community. Born was the idea of Love 4 Frank which would work to bring the community together to beautify Frank Love Elementary four times a year.
The first event was held in November. Over 25 adults and kids came out and worked together to accomplish tasks across campus. They fixed the drainage of a leaky faucet, repainted the faucet, prepared a flower bed for the students to plant 700 tulips bulbs in the next few weeks, and they raked and removed 10 huge garden bags of dead leaves from the exterior walk way/parking lot.
The coolest project though was the “cupping project.” PTA members worked together to install 42 feet of of fence cups along the entrance to their lovely school to spell out the school name. The project cost $500 but the end result was an eye-catching and colorful welcome when you drive up to the school. Frank Love PTA also hopes the project helped make a better connection with their immediate neighbors and the sign shows pride!
