Keepin’ It Clean Walks

The International School is surrounded by several open areas. While they are not part of campus property, we would like to help keep them clean and safe. As such, TIS has “Keepin’ It Clean” walks that operate in partnership with Friends of Riverplace (a neighborhood organization) and the City of Portland’s Office of Community and Civic Life. During these events, groups of volunteers walk the land surrounding the school to pick up trash, remove graffiti, and report concerns.

Each scheduled “Keepin’ It Clean” walk has been assigned to a grade.  These are not required, but we hope to encourage TIS parents, relatives, or caregivers to walk together, socialize, and to keep our campus safe and clean. Gloves, pickers, and trash bags provided.

The next three are:

Tuesday, September 11, 2018 – ALL Grades (this is tomorrow!) – 8:15 am to 9:15 am; meet at Hilltop front gate.

Tuesday, September 25, 2018 – PreK and LowK – 8:15 am to 9:15 am; meet at Hilltop front gate.

Tuesday, October 9, 2018 – Kindergarten – 8:15 am to 9:15 am; meet at Hilltop front gate.

Your help is needed! These count towards parent volunteer hours! Adults only.
