Outdoor Classroom Expansion @ Holmes Elementary School (MLK Day 2017)

“Life’s Most Persistent and Urgent Question is: What are YOU Doing for Others?” 
     - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.                                                                                     

Taking place each year on the third Monday in January, the MLK Day of Service is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service – a "day on, not a day off."  The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President's national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems. The MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King's vision of a "Beloved Community."  This year’s MLK Day of Service will take place on Monday, January 16th, and HandsOn Miami will lead the charge locally by activating 100 volunteers in service at 4 locations across our Miami-Dade County community during our MLK Weekend Celebration.  

The description that follows is for the "Outdoor Classroom Expansion @ Holmes Elementary School" project site. 

Join us as we further enhancements to the educational and instructional environments at Holmes Elementary School.

Volunteers will work alongside HandsOn Miami Project Leaders and Holmes Elementary School's Science Coach to establish 3 new raised bed gardens and expand a mural that serves as the backdrop for this active and evolving outdoor classroom space!
