Find Partners for Your School

Your school may already have partnerships with various businesses or non-profits organizations – great! Make sure to contact these groups and invite them to work with you on Love Our Schools Day. This is also a great time to asset map the community around the school and identifies some groups that you wish to work with.

Who is at the Table?

Once you have a leadership team, and project goals in mind, it’s time to invite others to the table! Try for a diverse group with the whole community represented!

Begin by asking these 3 questions: 

  • Who is at the table? (Your current partners are your most valuable asset!)
  • Who are we missing? (What part of your community is not represented?)
  • Who else should we invite? (Determine specific people to contact)

How to Find Partners?

When talking with these groups, discuss how this partnership can be mutually beneficial. Share strengths of the school, areas of growth, and how together we can help achieve growth for the entire community!

Plan Love Our Schools Day Projects

Now that your leadership team has identified the projects for Love Our Schools Day and the community partners have been contacted, set a time to plan the projects for the day. Discuss what resources each group has to offer and who can supply what for the projects. This is where it comes in handy to have the facilities manager present who can easily provide information on what the school already has.

Make sure to complete any paperwork the district may require like a facilities use form or a site improvement form and have that turned in before Love Our Schools Day. Create project lists on giant sticky notes or card-stock to use on the day of the event so volunteers can mark off the projects as they complete them.

Check out this example site improvement form from the Washington Elementary School District and see if your district has something similar! Use the project goals worksheet to plan the projects for the event.

How to Post Projects?

With your projects planned, now it is time to post them to the School Project Site so volunteers can begin to sign up for the projects and learn more about what the school is doing. This is also an easy way to plan for how many people will be on your campus so the necessary number of supplies can be provided.

Doing this alone is impossible; it takes all of us working together to make a difference.
