Students, parents and community members gathered on May 13 for the annual beautification event Sparkle Saturday.

“I wanted to get our school clean and make it more presentable to everyone,” sophomore Judith Ntere said. “It makes our campus cleaner and makes students care for our school.”

For the past four years, Daniel Pearl Magnet High School has been hosting the event to make the campus a more inviting and safer place. Previously, the event was held before open house so that our school can stand out from others with its new look. This year, the timing changed to the week before PearlCon II.

Volunteers pulled weeds, swept up leaves, cleaned up flower beds and accomplished countless other tasks. Some areas of main concern included the back of the school, the entrance toward the main office and Danny’s garden.

Sparkle Saturday was planned to be open from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. However, with the help of over 60 students and 20 parents, it ended around noon.

“I enjoyed coming and helping our school,” freshman Rosa Lemus said. “It was a really fun experience helping out, especially with friends.”
