BES Beautification Committee


Beautiful landscaping and clean facilities push students in the right direction by giving them a wonderful space to work and grow in. Along with encouraging students to be more involved in their school day, beautification teaches students how to be more respectful of the environment and to clean up after themselves.

Our Objectives


Beautification Projects

We need volunteers to support the following projects. Additionally we are looking for project leads who will provide oversight and partner with the Committee leads to ensure direction and resources are made available where need. We want to bring your vision to life in these efforts. Please consider volunteering.

Refurbish and renew school courtyards. Could potentially include a garden, ponds, or outdoor ecosystem

Blacktop/multi-purpose area

Project Lead:

We would like to create a multi-purpose space for the blacktop area near the school cafeteria. This area is currently being used by KAH and could potentially be a multi-purpose space for cafeteria/lunch. We are considering using rubber mulch in the grass area of this space

Food Recovery Program

Project Lead:

BES is partnered with MCPS and MANTA foods to collect and redistribute food

Indoor Beautification (murals/art)

Look for opportunities to incorporate beautification to the interior of BES. Specifically, in places like the bathrooms or walls. Potentially getting students to create Murals or Art exhibits in these spaces. Create contests and encourage environmental awareness and respect through student involvement.

Join the Beautification Committe

Please volunteer to be a part of our beautification team at BES. We are looking for folks who can help make the exterior and courtyard of our school as beautiful as the staff and children inside.

We are spending a lot of time outdoors these days, so let's make our school yard an amazing place for our Burtonsville children. Sign up to help make this happen. Committee members will lead the beautification efforts with the support of the PTA members and board.
