TCDS Partners with Lowe’s for Campus Beautification Day


Thank you to all of our students, parents, families, friends and Lowe’s volunteers who came out to help beautify our campus!

Lowe’s partnered with us for our school’s third Campus Beautification Day. As a community outreach project for Lowe’s, 10 store employees volunteered a recent Saturday to help spruce up our school in a variety of ways.

Lowe’s employees built and put into place five 4×8 foot beautiful planters for raised garden beds. Store volunteers and TCDS families worked together to fill the planters with soil and plants that the store provided. Succulents, strawberry and pepper plants, as well as lettuce are among the items planted in the garden beds.

Lowe’s volunteers also planted flowers in front of the school and stained and painted our school’s stage. Lowe’s has also donated paint for many projects on Tucson Country Day School’s (TCDS) campus. Thank you, Lowe’s!

Additional projects our TCDS community and volunteers worked on included:

  • Creating colorful signs to hang throughout the campus
  • Painting trash cans with bright colors, drawing and words
  • Painting around classroom door windows in Early Ed
  • Sprucing up the school’s garden with a new teaching area and netting to keep out critters
  • Building benches around the flower gardens

Thank you to ALL of our students, parents, families, friends and Lowe’s employees who volunteered and helped make our campus more beautiful!

Beautifying and “Leaderizing” Our Campus


A huge thank you to the dozens of parents, students, teachers, staff and ROTC military who turned out to volunteer during our school’s second annual Campus Beautification Day!

Great teamwork, superior leadership and amazing communication was had by all who helped at Saturday’s event.

Many volunteers worked under the middle school ramada – painting, decorating and writing positive words and phrases on vibrantly-colored signs and trash cans. Teachers, staff and parents teamed – as well as younger and older students – to make beautiful pieces of artwork on the new additions to our school. All verbage added on campus through painting and signs this weekend comes from the 7 Habits – which our school has implemented campus-wide. It is based on Steven Covey’s “The Leader in Me” program and his book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

Other volunteers painted curbs, doors and columns – updating the sections in bright colors.

A group of volunteers from ROTC, along with school volunteers, worked hard to do some heavy lifting and used great teamwork to put together a new playset in one of the lower playgrounds.

Thank you to ALL who came out to volunteer for our Campus Beautification Day! We sure did have a great and fun time beautifying our campus with all involved!

Campus Beautification Day


A HUGE thank you to all students, parents, families, teachers, staff, Tanque Verde High School Honor Society members and all who took time out of their Saturday to volunteer at school for Campus Beautification Day!

We repainted the trim on buildings and ramadas, repainted railings and even a bathroom to brighten up the colors.
