Centreville High School Beautification Day

On August 21 Centreville High School will be holding its 2nd Annual Grounds Beautification Day. The community is encouraged to come out starting at 8:00 a.m. to help with weeding, mulching, planting and trimming. Last year there were lots of helpers and the high school is expecting an even bigger crowd this year.

Students can earn volunteers hours for the work they put in. Tell your friends, neighbors and family and bring any supplies of your own such as wheelbarrows, weed eaters, rakes and shovels. After the school is beautified, it will be ready for the Back to School Festival on September 1 and the Freshman Orientation on September 3!
