15 Jun Schools Get Makeover During Project Shine
JSL spent their Saturday, June 22 cleaning, painting and beautifying Korte Elementary school during the 11th annual Project Shine.
Project Shine began with the annexation of six schools from Kansas City to the Independence School District. An emergency clean-up of those schools was necessary to get them ready for students. The impressive community support and that volunteer spirit helped Project Shine become an annual event.
More than 12,000 people have volunteered more than 60,000 hours since the first Project Shine event eleven years ago. That work and those hours of service have saved the Independence School District more than $500,000 dollars. We are very proud of this special day that highlights our strong schools and supportive community as we join together to make our schools shine!
