On a recent Sunday, one of the first beautiful fall mornings, Beach Elementary families gathered for the twice annual garden and grounds clean up. Work this year focused on setting up new picnic tables for instruction in the garden, maintenance on the Linda Street frontage, and weeding. Stephanie Pearson, a Beach parent who worked on the green schoolyard design three years ago summed it up. “We parents made a big investment in this campus for our kids and community. We should take the initiative to keep it looking great and benefiting our kids.” Principal Michael Corritone offered his thanks to parents who do so much for the school.
