UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS NEIGHBORHOOD
As a precautionary and preventative measure, Community Partnership of the Ozarks is postponing the Phelps Grove/University Heights Neighborhood Clean-up scheduled…
Exciting news! The good folks at Neighbor’s Mill Bakery & Cafe on East Sunshine Street are hosting a fundraiser for us! They are donating a whopping 20 percent of all proceeds from sales 4-8 p.m. April 2. Please plan to swing by for a treat to take home or a meal to enjoy to help us fund special projects.
Child care will be provided at this event.
Come join us as we celebrate our 10 year anniversary of providing Montessori education in Springfield. The Spring Fling Gala is our biggest fundraiser of the year. It is a fun night filled with live music, food, beer/wine, live and silent auctions. The focal points of the auction are beautiful class projects and individual student artwork.
Discovery Garden Montessori School provides early childhood education for children 16 months to 3 years old in the Toddler Program, children ages 3 to 6 years old in the Primary Program and a Lower Elementary School for children ages 6 to 9 or the equivalent of 1st – 3rd grade.
The mission of Discovery Garden Montessori School is to prepare an outstanding Montessori environment that fosters collaboration, cooperation and peace, and to provide experiences for each child to develop to his/her fullest potential academically, socially and emotionally. Through the dynamic partnership of the child, parent, and teacher, a consistent Montessori framework for learning is created, offering the tools for a journey of lifelong learning.
Residents and/or property owners in the Phelps Grove neighborhood are invited to participate in the spring neighborhood clean-up. The City and the neighborhood association encourages residents to take advantage of this free and convenient opportunity to dispose of trash, brush, metal and leaves. Residents are encouraged to address overgrown fence rows, backyards and alleys adjacent to your property by mowing, cutting down, trimming and disposing of all brush and related debris.
Each year, neighborhood clean-ups serve approximately 900 households and remove over 175 tons of bulk waste (furniture, mattresses, etc.) and brush from Springfield neighborhoods. The clean-ups take place outside, rain or shine. Items accepted are trash, brush, leaves and metal. Curbside pickup is available, but fees may apply. Contact Eric Pauly (Phelps Grove, 736-9357) or Jan Peterson (University Heights, 838-6216) to schedule a pickup.
Meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at the Springfield Art Museum, 1111 E. Brookside Drive.
