Save the Date- Support Ravensworth and Logan

I am Logan Pembleton. I'm working on my Outdoor Classroom Eagle Project with a goal to be completed before the next school year starts. Many of you may have attended Ravensworth Elementary School or have siblings that still go to school there. I would like your help to build a double sided whiteboard, 10 chairs, painting tree stumps for seating, and refurbishing a bench to give the students and teachers a nice place to hold classes outside. 

The Project will be on two days in different locations. Please come to one or both days if you are able. Lunch will be provided.  

August 7th 


My House: 9016 Fox Lair Dr. Burke VA 22015 

We will be cutting materials and preparing the projects

August 8th 


Ravensworth ES: 5411 Nutting Dr. Springfield VA 22151

We will be sanding, painting and assembling the final projects

Rain Date: August 11th, 5-8pm          

Items to bring:

  • Clothes that you don't mind getting dirty
  • Water (this is a MUST)
  • Work Gloves
  • Face Mask (not required)
  • Work Shoes
  • Safety Glasses (we have a few that we can lend but not many)

I know many of you will be at summer camp the week before my project and I hope you will still have time to help. Any amount of help is appreciated. Family and friends are welcome, remember volunteer hours are available for the time you help out. 

RSVP to me at loganpembleton@gmail.com by August 2nd and please tell me which days you can help.

Thank you,

Logan Pembleton
