On Saturday, October 8, 40 volunteers from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints - Grand Valley Ward went to Campus Elementary School to cleanup and revitalized the school's exterior.  

The group cleaned up the playground, reseeded erosion areas, de-weeded and re-mulched areas near the parking lot, and painted the small utility shed on the property. 

The service project was organized by Bishop Michael Robinaugh of the LDS Grand Valley Ward. Those who volunteered had a personal interest in the school district; many were former Campus Elementary School or Campus Early Childhood Development teachers and staff.

“It went really well,” said Paul Nydam, Operations and Ground Supervisor for Grand Rapids Public Schools.  “The volunteers really enhanced the groundwork at the school.”  Nydam hopes to continue the service project to keep GRPS schools beautiful and vibrant in the future.
