Hurley Clean-Up

At CF Southie we have developed a strong community in a very short period of time. Jason has been a very involved member of our community and has asked if we would like to be involved in a project. I realize most people are working from 2:30 to 4:30 on Friday, but if you aren’t come on by. It will be a great way to represent our community outside of the gym. Here are some words from Jason:

“This Friday, we will be holding our second Hurley Clean-Up. The Student Council and I will be continuing to proactively beautify our school. We can no longer wait for others to take care of what needs taking care of, nor maintenance. As a result, we have decided to take matters into our own hands. It leaves me so proud that these fantastic 11-14 year olds are completely committed to doing what is necessary to be civically engaged. They are not only incredible thinkers, but also, community activists. They are realizing (in good ole fashioned Humanities form) that school is not only about what occurs within the classroom, but what lessons and values we bring from the classroom to outside the building’s walls, to the community and world-at-large (This is so incredibly important; I am committed to my scholars not only being phenomenal thinkers, but ensuring that this phenomenal thinking is directed in a way that transforms whatever it touches).

So, in alignment with the neighborhood association of our little neighborhood, some parents, some students, a couple teachers, and potentially some Crossfit Southie interested people, we will be weeding, cleaning, and bordering the school yard. We have been putting up signs everywhere to remind people that littering is convenient yet illegal, and that dogs pooping really is disgusting and irresponsible. It amazes me what people do to our school; some of these same people complaining about where their taxes are going, yet not taking a moment to reflectively think about their own choices and how these choices add up to expensive solutions. Anyway, if you are able to attend, bring a friend, whatever, provide shovels, gloves, plastic bags, just a really appreciated helping hand, it would be awesome. The more help, the better. We will finish on Friday at 4:30pm with our school looking great, with it weedless and tight, with small moats around each shrub and flower bed mulched so that those same weeds don’t re-encroach. I am completely committed to the Hurley being the tightest K-8 program in the metropolitan area. Please come on by to witness community action! Holler!”

    I’d love to help, but it’s tough for me to get out of the office early on Friday. Jason, if there’s anything I can donate email me: [email protected].

    Jason, I won’t get home from work in time to participate, but I would like to donate supplies. What would be most helpful? Also, I want to mention that you’re doing an amazing job empowering your students. I can tell you are a fantastic, passionate teacher!
