PAINT OUR COMMUNITY GREEN!! By Liz Seabury, Principal

To celebrate this year’s graduation class, we are asking our communities to PAINT OUR COMMUNITY GREEN! Not literally BUT we do want to see our homes, towns, businesses decorate to celebrate this amazing senior class. We are organizing a graduation celebration on June 12th and we would love to see the towns slowly grow more with DRAKE PRIDE as we approach the big day. Think Halloween decorations gone GREEN, WHITE and BLACK!! Signs on garages, green front doors, Pirate decorations abound!! We are also hoping to see EVERYONE wearing GREEN and WHITE on our BIG DAY- June 12th to support our Class of 2020!


Some of our neighboring schools are providing a yard sign for their graduates. In Drake style, we decided to ask our community to decorate their yards FOR the seniors. Or if you have a Drake Senior, please feel free to go all out! The Drake Fund (our amazing parent organization) will be supplying the community with small Drake Flags to adorn your yards, windows, fence posts to show your support of our PIRATES. Whatever decorations go up BEYOND the flag is yours to go GREEN WILD! Our flags are reusable (an important quality for Drake AND if we ever need to celebrate Drake again, you will have this on hand) and the flags will be a symbol of what is most dear to us all: OUR COMMUNITY and OUR KIDS.


Thank you for joining me in our CALL TO PAINT OUR COMMUNITY GREEN! The flags will be available starting June 1st and the decorations can grow steadily bigger, more Pirate-y, and MORE GREEN as we prepare for June 12th!
