Rogers Park Middle School gets weekend makeover
Posted on 05/07/2019

On Saturday, May 4, more than 100 parents and community members volunteered their time to painting the inside of Rogers Park Middle School.

Volunteers included Board of Education members, teachers and students. Through its subsidiary Praxair, Inc., Linde, with corporate offices in Danbury, and Sherwin-Williams employees also participated. The job required more than 75 gallons of paint to cover 30,000 square feet of hallway space. Linde’s grant, provided through its Global Giving Program, funded the supplies and Sherwin-Williams donated the paint.

“It is wonderful when a community gets together to help improve the everyday lives of its students,” said Superintendent Dr. Sal Pascarella. “The school’s hallways look beautiful, but the project was more than just a facelift: it was a testament to what happens when everyone works together. We are grateful to our corporate sponsors Linde, Praxair and Sherwin-Williams and all the people who donated their free time to spruce up Rogers Park.”
