Group seeks volunteers to help Pasco schools reopen after remodeling

Shuttered for renovations during the past year, Anclote Elementary and Bayonet Point Middle schools will reopen for classes in August.

The Rotary Club is spearheading an effort to have volunteers help move furniture and other equipment into the buildings. They've done similar work in the past for other schools, such as Richey Elementary, as they reopened.

"This is a great way for everyone to come out and make a difference in our community schools and in the lives of teachers of our children," said School Board Member Cynthia Armstrong, who is helping organize the initiative. "Moving into a new facility is a giant task for teachers and in just a few hours our community can help make a big dent in the process."

Anclote Elementary, 3610 Madison St., will be the first project. People can help teachers move into their classrooms from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Monday, July 18.

The work turns to Bayonet Point Middle, 11125 Little Road, at 9 a.m. Tuesday, July 26.

Lunch will be served after the move-ins. To volunteer call Armstrong at 727-364-7653 or email her at [email protected]
