MARYSVILLE — The PTA, staff and students of Kellogg Marsh Elementary School would like to invite anyone in the community who wishes to help brighten their children's daily surroundings to take part in the school's "Spring Spruce-Up" and dedication of its memorial garden.
On March 31, volunteers will gather at 9 a.m. to work on Kellogg Marsh's building and grounds. At roughly 2 p.m. that afternoon, the school will dedicate its memorial garden with its first plaque in memory of Grace Tam, the 11-year-old fifth-grade student at Kellogg Marsh Elementary who died in an accident at the the Big Four ice caves in Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest nearly two years ago.
"The children were looking for a fitting tribute to her and I believe they have found it," said Barbara Messick, the PTA secretary and volunteer coordinator for Kellogg Marsh
Elementary. "So if you have time to get dirty, would like to donate or just want show your support for the school, we would love to hear from you."
Volunteers may email Messick at Messick44@hotmail.com, or simply stop by on March 31.
