Killington Mountain School students work to beautify the school campus with gardens, games and spring cleaning.

KILLINGTON — The Killington Mountain School community spent Wednesday, May 27, greening up the campus, beautifying the grounds and putting to practice Head of School Tao Smith’s oft quoted maxim: “Leave the place better off than how you found it.”

Students, coaches, faculty and staff worked together to get the KMS community garden planted, to build a horseshoe pit, to put up the basketball hoop, and even to wash windows, leaving the building and grounds sparkling from the several hours of spring cleaning.

After a few hours of working in the warm and humid temperatures, everyone relaxed with a BBQ lunch followed by popsicles, and some frisbee passing, football tossing, and playing of the ever-popular Can-Jam game.

The community is looking forward to gathering on campus next Saturday, June 6 at 1 p.m for the full-term graduation and celebration.
