GREENBELT PERMISSION SLIP

We will need 3-4 parent volunteers this Friday.
Also, bring in pruning shears (hand held ones; not the long loppers) if you can.
Greenbelt Service Project
Friday, March 25th
Mr. Samson’s class will be participating in an action project this Friday, March 25th, from 1:15-2:30. We will walk down to the green belt (the green space just south of Hansen’s lower soccer field) and work to clear the trails. Students will be working to clear brush, cut back plants, and pick up trash. The goal is to make the space and the trails accessible to students at Marshall and Hansen. Students may be in contact with middle school students as this is a joint project with Marshall Citizen Science Institute. Students will want to bring raincoats, rain boots and work gloves. Students may be using pruning shears.
I give permission for my student, __________________________, to participate in the Greenbelt Service Project.
⏯ I do NOT want my child using pruning shears.
