ASKED QUESTIONS

    Love Our Schools Day projects are selected by a school and their leadership team to add support where it is needed most. Some projects directly impact students by providing facility installations or updates, school supplies, or student incentives for working hard in school. Other projects build the environment of the school itself by supporting staff, or giving students a sense of safety, high standards, and school pride.

    Love Our Schools Day is an annual event hosted by individual school districts on school campuses. Often they are scheduled for Saturdays in October or November, although it depends on the individual school district schedule. Some schools even host Love Our Schools Day projects in the spring!

    Love Our Schools Day projects should include the entire community. Perfect for a business team builder, a church service day, a neighborhood club, the local fire department, a school sports team or student council or even an individual volunteer – everyone in the community is welcome!

    Businesses often use the volunteer opportunity for their employees to give back! For Love Our Schools Day Projects, we matchmake the strengths and resources of the business with the corresponding goals of the school. Since School Connect works with schools across the state, reach out for information on options and sponsorship opportunities coming this fall!

    Projects are school specific based on current goals or needs. Examples of projects might be planting a garden, cleaning a classroom, updating a teacher’s lounge, fixing up a playground, painting a mural, or building game equipment.
