On Saturday, October 24th Trees Atlanta was once again generous enough to focus their attention on Westview. Volunteers from outside the neighborhood and the community itself spent the morning planting trees along Lucile Avenue between the village center at Ralph David Abernathy and the neighborhood edge at Langhorn.

KIPP STRIVE Preparation

KIPP STRIVE Preparation

With KIPP STRIVE Academy opening its doors to the first 95 5th graders in two weeks on July 8th volunteers were hard at work this past weekend to get the school ready. Neighbors, teachers, and parents joined efforts to get the classrooms, offices, auditorium and hallways furnished and decorated. Desks and filing cabinets were hauled from the basement to the designated rooms, bulletin boards were setup, artwork was hung on the walls, and tennis balls attached to the feet of auditorium chairs. Exciting features of KIPP STRIVE is an outdoor classroom, as well as raised vegetable beds and a compost all overlooking the future BeltLine trail. As a “thank you” gesture lunch was provided for the volunteers.
