Help paint Walnut Hill

Now is the time to help paint Walnut Hill Elementary 

If you can hold a brush, then you are invited to help paint Walnut Hill Elementary School this summer. 

Community groups, churches, sororities, fraternities, alumni and individuals are all welcome. Painting starts now and continues 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays until Aug. 9. Can you paint for a two-hour shift or more? Can you bring friends to help? All supplies are provided, but the school system needs community support to get this job done. 

Last summer, the Petersburg community rallied to paint Petersburg High School. A freshly painted building helps students and teachers feel supported and proud of their school when they return in September. Please help Petersburg City Public Schools create a strong start for the coming school year for students, teachers and employees.
