Due to budget shortfalls, the Kansas City Missouri School District (KCMSD) is only able to mow the lawns at Hale Cook Elementary School every three weeks. Even with all of the school closures in 2010, the District must maintain the same number of properties. We, the community around Hale Cook, believe it is important to maintain the lawn so this beautiful campus does not become a blight in the neighborhood.

As part of a Memorandum of Understanding between the KCMSD and Hale Cook Steering Committee, we have permission to help mow the lawn. Thank you very much to the volunteers who have agreed to help us with our effort to keep Hale Cook beautiful as we get ready for our enrollment plan for Fall 2012.
