Good Things Happen Here

At our National African American Parent Involvement Day on February 8th a parent suggested that we capture simple random acts of kindness. Here are a few of the great things that our volunteers have done to support our community.

Boston Scientific Gardening Day

On Thursday August 23rd 52 volunteers from Boston Scientific provided weeding, planting and organizing in four community garden areas on our Patrick Henry High School campus including our Oak Savannah, Courtyard, Tree Lined and Tall Grasses gardens.  Students from the Henry’s own FIRST Team 2500 Herobotics team worked along side Boston Scientific volunteers throughout the day.  We removed so much brush and weeds that it took a Bobcat and 2 dump trucks to clean up everything gathered from all the gardens!  Volunteers also helped us prepare for our annual Patrick Henry Open House by setting up tents and over 30 tables and over 80 chairs for the event.  We estimated that 1,200 people attending the evening event for which volunteers helped us prepare.   

We see the Boston Scientific partnership as strengthening and growing because of this event.  We see future connections occurring regarding our STEM partnership and look forward to increasing the exchange of ideas through visits and other events.  We were able to create friendships and share connections regarding college and career options.  

We are grateful to Boston Scientific volunteers for the dramatic improvement to our school grounds that they provided.  We would never have completed all we needed to do without their volunteer help!  Thank You Boston Scientific!
