On Saturday, May 19th, from 9 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., we will have our annual Spring Cleanup at the Sargent School. We will plant seasonal flowers, pick up litter and sticks, pull weeds, rake leaves, spread mulch, and clear fallen trees and brush from our outdoor curriculum area (“Woodland Study Area”). Please come prepared with work gloves, rakes, shovels, wheelbarrows, cultivators/weeding tools, clippers/loppers, and any other favorite yard tools. Donations of annual and perennial flowers are also appreciated. As a thank you for your time and efforts, pizza will be served to volunteers at the end of the cleanup.

Fifth Grade Committee
Time to start gathering your old suitcases, duffle bags and book bags. Our 5th grade class will be holding a drive to collect bags for Suitcases4Kids, an organization founded by our own Sargent parent Ron Nickerson. (check out www.suitcases4kids.org). “In almost every musty basement, garage, or attic, there is an old, forgotten suitcase that has long since been replaced by shiny new luggage. And all around the country, when foster children are forced to move their belongings, they throw them in trash bags, putting their prized possessions into containers for garbage”. Let’s help Suitcases4Kids help these children move with dignity. Our drive will be held on Saturday, April 28th on the Sargent Grounds.
