Upcoming Pacific View School Fall Cleaning September 17th. Following fast on the heels of last-month’s successful debut clean-up party at Pacific View School, The Encinitas Arts Culture and Ecology Alliance has scheduled another volunteer work morning for September 17th. Last month’s on-site work party—which saw over 30 volunteers and various city and county officials pitching in—made significant headway in cleaning up accumulated trash, weeds and debris around the school’s nearly three-acre perimeter. The scheduled Saturday-morning work party will focus on improving erosion control by re-installing the soil-retention fiber rolls on the school’s periphery. Brad Roth and Mark Wisniewski of the Cottonwood Creek Conservancy will lend their grading and soil expertise. We will move to the interior schoolyard to clean up the proposed gardens’ space and contribute to a more pleasant PVS experience overall. Volunteers are encouraged to wear hats and use sun protection as well as bring garden tools, buckets, cleaning supplies. Work commences at 8:30 a.m. and all volunteers must sign a general release under EACEA’s Right Of Entry agreement. We are hoping for a generous turnout as many hands make light work. Water, oranges and a good dirty time guaranteed! For details, contact Joy Lyndes: firstname.lastname@example.org
September 6, 2016: New Windows! The broken windows of classrooms 1 through 7 (north-facing side of Pacific View School) were replaced on September 1st and 2nd, financed by a grant from the San Diego County Board of Supervisors. New glass for other broken windows to follow immediately, covered by the same grant. Thanks to Supervisor Dave Roberts for jumpstarting the building rehabilitation!
