Greening Concord International Elementary

The final phase of improvements to the grounds of Concord International Elementary School: a safer southwest entryway.


The Concord International Elementary School PTA is working to improve and beautify the school grounds by adding rain gardens, trees, safer access to crosswalks, a safer southwest entryway, and a butterfly garden that will provide hands-on scientific learning opportunities for students.

We have one phase of the project left to fund—designing and building a safe and attractive ramp that will guide families from the sidewalk to a walkway from which they can access the school or playground. There is currently only one entry path to the school grounds, which is on the busiest section of the block. Many families use a secondary hillside path that is unsightly, often muddy, and leads directly into the parking lot.

This project would not be possible without tireless advocacy from the Concord community and generous donations from our funders: King County Conservation District, Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, Duwamish River Opportunity Fund, Peach Foundation, and individual donors.
