Community Service Day at Stephen Knolls School
BrightView partnered with the Property Management Association for a community service day
At BrightView, we believe in taking great care of our clients, teams, communities, and the environment. We take pride in helping our communities. The BrightView Mid-Atlantic team recently donated their skills to a deserving property in one of our communities, Stephen Knolls School, in Silver Spring, Md.
Stephen Knolls School provides special education programs for students from three to 21 years old. It provides collaborative and comprehensive educational services, utilizing a transdisciplinary approach. The staff at Stephen Knolls School address the educational and physical needs of each student by modifying instructional materials and incorporating resources, such as adaptive equipment and augmentative communication devices.
This was the fifth year that BrightView partnered with the Property Management Association for a community service day at the school. The day started with volunteers uprooting and removing plants, weeds, bushes, and even some trees. Others power washed bricks and installed new rainfall drainage systems. Volunteers added multiple trees throughout the property, planted dozens of flowers, spread mulch, and trimmed hedges.
“It has been a pleasure partnering with BrightView and the Property Management Association these past five years,” said Kim Redgrave, Principal of Stephen Knolls School. “Every year, they do an amazing job creating an inviting environment that both the students and faculty can take pride in.”
BrightView recognizes the impact a school’s grounds can have on its students and they are honored to play a small part in the extraordinary Stephen Knolls School program.
Every year they [BrightView] do an amazing job creating an inviting environment that both the students and faculty can take pride in.
