The Adopt-A-School program is entering its fourth consecutive year in which government agencies pair up with public schools to offer manpower, equipment, and financial support as schools prepare to welcome students and parents on the first day of the school year. DOE Superintendent Jon Fernandez says this program shows a healthy partnership in support of our community and students. This morning, firefighters were up early to water blast and paint the Ordot school.
Agueda Principal James Petite says this partnership with GFD has been going on for three years. He says, “This is a wonderful opportunity for us to partner with our community. These guys have come out for three years, do a phenomenal job. Yesterday, they were painting and today they’re finishing up. The service…these guys come from work and it’s a wonderful relationship we have with GFD.”
