On Friday, May 29, City Year Dallas, 56 volunteers from the Celanese Corporation, and a group of students worked together on a campus beautification project at Franklin Delano Roosevelt High School.
Projects included painting murals on walls, planting beds for the interior courtyard, painting the Dallas skyline on the gym wall, and building picnic tables and benches. Additionally, volunteers and students will work to build an outdoor classroom in August.
“This is a great example of bringing businesses in to the school and developing a partnership,” Roosevelt High School Principal Brian De Veaux said.
Roosevelt High School is part of Division 2, which is led by Assistant Superintendent Stephanie Elizalde and Executive Director Jennifer Span.
City Year Dallas has partnered with a number of Dallas ISD campuses and plans to expand their partnership for the 2015-2016 school year. For more information on City Year Dallas, click here.
