Donation to Three Oaks Elementary & Three Oaks Middle:
From Shadow Wood Community Association
The Shadow Wood Community Associated recently presented a maintenance cart to Three Oaks Middle School and to Three Oaks Elementary School as part of Estero’s Education Initiative. The carts will be used by the Maintenance Department at each school for moving supplies around their campuses.
The Estero Educational Initiative was established to create a partnership between the Village of Estero and the Lee County School District to help make the schools in Estero the best they can be.
It is the goal of this Initiative to create a public/private partnership between the Village of Estero and the Lee County School District, businesses, civic organizations, residents, parents and school staff to work together to encourage volunteerism in our schools and to raise funds to improve educational, recreational and esthetic experiences in our schools.
District 6 Councilmember Nick Batos is the Council Liaison for Estero’s Education Initiative.
Donation to Pinewoods Elementary:
From The Club at Grandezza Living Community
In June of 2018, The Club at Grandezza made the decision to donate manpower and equipment to power wash the Campus at Pinewoods Elementary School before school start-up. This Project is one of the results of a Memorandum of Understanding Agreement signed between the Village of Estero and the School District of Lee County.
School Board Member Chris Patricca and Councilman Nick Batos of the Village of Estero were most instrumental in making that happen. The Estero Council of Community Leaders Education Outreach Council was charged with recruiting community support and volunteers to meet the Estero area school’s needs.
Pinewoods Elementary School’s limited funds prohibited the school from implementing a program to clean up the school grounds. Stacey Henson (General Manager, The Club at Grandezza) and Club Maintenance Supervisor (Scott Moorehead) offered to complete a Power Washing Project for Pinewoods Elementary school as a donation from The Club at Grandezza to our community.
The project required 5-6 days to complete. Beginning July 30, 2018, the project continued for 4 -5 days and each project work-day commencing at 6 am. Stacey and Scott not only authored the project, but Scott literally was there every day in the trenches.
“To say that I am overwhelmed and grateful is an understatement at best…WOW! What an incredible gift! Our school will look just amazing! Thank you just isn’t enough.” Leslie Gunderson, Principal, Pinewoods Elementary School LeslieAG@LeeSchools.Net.
