2019-2020 Projects List

Laurel Ridge Elementary takes pride in being a part of a community that embraces the importance of having a thriving neighborhood school.

Climb the Ridge already has the support of The Home Depot. Would you or your business like to become a sponsor? Contact the laurel Ridge Building and Grounds Committee at PTABandG@laurelridgeelementary.com for more information.

For the 2019-2020 school year, Climb the Ridge has prioritized painting the building’s interior and exterior, and enhancing classroom, courtyard and playground spaces. An additional priority for the current school year is creating a distinct outdoor classroom that will optimize parts of the school’s grounds for cross-curricular studies. The outdoor classroom will also be easily accessible by the school’s special needs student population.

On September 8, 2018 Climb the Ridge organizers held the first official Climb the Ridge work day where volunteers ranging from parents and students, to school administrators, community residents and local businesses donated their time and tools to give the school an exterior facelift. The results were amazing. Through the school year, volunteers worked outside and inside of the school. Projects such as new outdoor games and playground clean-up. But more needs to be done and wonderful volunteers are needed to make it happen. A schedule of workdays and more projects will be posted soon. And we need your help to make these projects happen.
