TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Santa Rita High School is in for a touch-up Saturday.  Tucson Unified SchoolDistrict's top leaders, parents, and others will help spruce up the campus from 8 a.m. to Noon.

The campus at 3951 S. Pantano Road is the latest site chosen for the Adopt-A-School program, which will coincide with a beautification day the school had already scheduled.  The beautification project will go on all day.

Work at Santa Rita will include flower and tree planting, stump removal gardening and general grounds cleanup. 
 
Volunteers are welcome, and no experience is necessary. If you have them, bring work gloves, yard tools, hand tools, sunscreen and a hat. TUSD operations staff members will be on hand to guide the work.

The goal of the Adopt-A-School program is to bring together district leaders and members of the community to take on projects not covered under general maintenance.

Holladay Magnet School and Davis Bilingual Elementary Magnet have already had improvement projects completed through the program. 

The next school in the Adopt-A-School program is Pistor Middle School. Work is scheduled for April 26.
 
The Educational Enrichment Foundation, 3809 E. Third St., is accepting financial support and tool donations for the Adopt-A-School project. Call325-8688 for more information.
 
For more information about the program, contact James Baker, project manager,at 225-4689 or James.Baker@tusd1.org.
