Local Students Work to Improve City Schools

Dozens of students from St. John Fisher College spent the day Saturday giving city schools a makeover.
Dozens of students from St. John Fisher College spent the day Saturday giving city schools a makeover.

It's all part of a two-weekend event called Project Community Convergence. Every year, students volunteer their time to help schools complete long overdue tasks, from priming and painting to cleaning and organizing,. Four schools got help.

"This work is desperately needed," Fisher junior Brandie Rice said. "It's work that the regular janitorial staff doesn't have time for in the year, so it's kind of the beautification projects that get left behind by the schools when they don't have the time or the resources."

"To hear how much they appreciate it just makes all the time worth it," Fisher sophomore Kate Tranelli said. "It's really great."

The schools chosen are School of the Arts, School Number 15, Nazareth Elementary and Rochester Association of Performing Arts. Student volunteers will be back at it again next weekend.
