The Latham Campus is in the Midst of Spring Cleansing!
Posted May 02 2013 1:04pm
Wow. It seems like overnight, the gardens, trees and birds have erupted all around us! Spring has gloriously arrived and Latham School is shaking off her winter coat! The painters are coming, the grass is being mowed, the kids are prepping the gardens and picnic lunches, long overdue, are happening. Latham School is situated on a beautiful campus and making it a home is our shared responsibility.
Maintenance staff, housekeepers and staff from all parts of the program are helping students and the program de-clutter and organize for the outdoor season. Gone are mittens, boots and coats. Hello to sunscreen, baseball hats and tee shirts! This is a learning experience for students to assess what gets put away, given away or tossed away. Not easy concepts for any of us who become attached to the familiar.
So, take a cue from the kids. What can still be used by others will be gratefully received by any number of local groups in your area. Feel good about helping someone else in need. Lightening your clutter will lighten your mood. Now go outside and play!
