Take a look at these important updates and events happening at Mary B. Austin Elementary this month:
Campus Clean-up - January 23
Make plans to lend a hand on Saturday, January 23, 8am-12pm, for our first campus clean-up of the year. Mary B. Austin volunteers will be spreading new mulch on the playground, as well as general schoolyard cleanup tasks such as picking up limbs, trimming hedges, etc. Wheelbarrows/carts, pitchforks, shovels, and garden rakes are needed to spread the mulch. Many hands make light work! Make plans to help our school look its best for 2021! Help us spread the word by sharing the event on Facebook.
