After maintenance work in front of Daniel Webster Elementary School resulted in a disrupted landscape, members of the school’s parent teacher organization set to work to improve the building’s appearance.
The members decided on a solution that beautifies the landscape while also raising money for vital programs and giving families and community members an opportunity to leave a lasting mark on the school.
“At one of the PTO meetings, we talked about the space and ideas to fix it and the idea of adding a brick patio area that would have personalized bricks bought from the community was presented and well received,” said PTO member Amy Brown. “The money raised from sales, will go directly to the school for enrichment programs, supplies and needed school equipment.”
Individuals purchasing the bricks are able to choose what they’d like their brick to say.
“I think that families would appreciate this opportunity to buy a brick so that their past, current and or future students or family members have a piece of them at the school: Buy A Brick, Leave A Legacy!” Brown said.
While the bricks will be installed at DWS, Brown said the larger Marshfield community is invited to participate as well.
“This is open to all to purchase as it can be to honor a loved one or a teacher or a local company supporting the school,” she said.
Orders for the bricks will be taken through July 1; they are available in both four inches by eight inches, which costs $50, and eight inches by eight inches, which costs $100. They can be purchased at bricksrus.com/donorsite/dwsbricks. Any questions can be sent to email@example.com.
