A great example of community pride was demonstrated on Dec. 10, when students, parents and teachers all worked together to help beautify G.W. Carver Elementary in Coral Gables.
The school’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA) was awarded a $2,000 beautification grant by the University Baptist Church resulting in more than 300 shrubs and 100 plants being planted at the main entrance of the school along Grand Avenue.
The happy volunteers were grouped to help paint the historic school sign and decorate special mosaic tile plant vases. At the end of the day, the participants enjoyed an outdoor barbecue and celebrated the successful completion of this school beautification project.
