Friends of Frances

Volunteers, teachers, students, scouts, and community members comprise Harper Jr. High’s campus care group titled Friends of Frances. They meet 8 times each school year for work party parties from 9 to noon at Harper.

Come help beautify the school campus! Tree-planting, hedge-trimming, mulching, and much more! Just drop by! No sign-up necessary. Stay as long as you’d like. Bring water and work clothing. Bring your own tools and gloves, or use ours. If helping with mulch, you might want to bring a dust mask. All are welcome! Consider bringing a breakfast treat for our 10:15 break!

Contact science teacher Ken McKim at with any concerns or questions or donations.

Summer Update & Calendar:

Check out the Friends of Frances Summer Calendar below to see when Mr. McKim could use your help. He’ll update the calendar on the fly as his summer commitments can be unpredictable. Check the calendar whenever you have a free morning. There's no need to RSVP, just come join in the fun!

Bring your family or friends, bring water, & wear work clothes. Most days, work will start at 8:00 and end at 11:00 a.m. due to the heat.
