May 14 Monthly Meeting – 7pm St. John’s Hospital Assisi Room

McClernand Extreme School Makeover to be Topic of May Membership Meeting

West Side Christian Church has chosen McClernand Ele-mentary School to be the target of its annual Sharefest pro-gram. Springfield Sharefest began in 2011, when Harvard Park Elementary received a makeover for the school’s 100th anniversary. A team from West Side will give a presentation at the May 14th membership meeting about this year’s project.

In the summer of 2013, Springfield Sharefest will tackle another Extreme School Makeover in partnership with Springfield District #186. From July 27-August 3, more than 1000 volunteers will be working on projects both in-side and outside at McClernand, investing an estimated $250,000 into physical improvements. As a bonus this year, Springfield Sharefest will also complete needed health, safety and enhancement projects at Jane Addams Elementary School.

One of the primary goals of Springfield Sharefest is to re-engage the entire community with Springfield Public Schools. The synergy of a community rallied behind our public schools brings help and hope to our city.

Springfield Sharefest is looking for individuals, churches, businesses and community organizations to partner togeth-er to make future extreme school makeovers a success. There are still opportunities for you, your business or your organization to become a Springfield Sharefest Partner. For more information or to be added to the email list, visit
