Oliveira makes a difference!
Submitted By Linda Anderson, Principal
More than 75 volunteers contributed nearly 200 hours helping out during the October 22 "Make a Difference Day" clean-up at Oliveira Elementary School. Many thanks go to the organizational skills of our school's Office Assistant, Mrs. Anne Damron. We are so thankful for the Oliveira community that cares for their neighborhood school.
During the three hour activity, picnic tables and benches were scrubbed clean, succulents trimmed, a huge hedge and rosebush trimmed in the Kindergarten yard, graffiti painted over in the back easement, playground poles painted, Halloween Carnival games sorted, and flowers planted and watered.
Oliveira students, preschoolers, American High students, Thornton Junior High students, FUSD staff, Texas Roadhouse employees, parents and grandparents also contributed during the day. Among the volunteers were FUSD School Superintendent Jim Morris and City of Fremont Human Relations Commissioner Ripple Leung and Andy Armadillo.
Everyone enjoyed bagels donated by Noah's Bagels and juice courtesy of Johnson Michael and family. All volunteers received a certificate of participation and were invited to the reception with City of Fremont Mayor Bob Wasserman held on November 8.
