Parents put in elbow greaseParents of students at Basalt Elementary spent a full week in late August volunteering to spruce up the school campus. Parents put a new wooden awning over the front entrance, painted exterior doors, beautified the flower gardens with plants and river rocks, painted the kindergarten playground fence and picnic tables, and mulched and weeded the school’s large playground. Inside the building, the school office got a new granite countertop courtesy of Native Sons and Creative Tiling. Kudos to organizer Deedee Hooker and all the active parents going the extra mile for their kids’ school through their “Reach for the Stars” campaign this year. Mid-valley businesses, including Valley Lumber, Aspen Earthmoving, Hayes Brothers Painting and Old World Woodworks, donated all supplies and materials.Parents of students at Basalt Elementary spent a full week in late August volunteering to spruce up the school campus.
