Tulsa, Oklahoma, June 25 – Tulsa’s newest school, Tulsa Lighthouse Charter School (TLCS), will host a Day of Service July 14 at the former Greeley Elementary School. Community volunteers and organizations will contribute time and resources to clean, paint, and landscape the building and grounds in preparation for TLCS’ grand opening on August 11th.

TLCS will serve 280 students in grades Pre-K – 4th grade as the first Lighthouse Academies Charter School in Oklahoma. Volunteers on July 14 will prepare the building for students to start school in August by painting classrooms and hallways, cleaning lockers and floors, and adding some landscaping to the school grounds.

Founding Principal, Jamila MacArthur, is looking forward to starting a partnership with the neighborhood for this Day of Service. “Tulsa Lighthouse Charter School is the community’s school. We are excited to work together with our parents, families, and the community to beautify our campus for each and every one of our scholars.”

Regional Vice President David Burks adds, “We’re looking forward to having so many members of this community come together to create a brighter tomorrow for Tulsa’s children. Be a part of the educational revolution right here in Tulsa.” If you are interested in participating in TLCS’ Day of Service, please call us at 918.231.4212 or email us at info-TLCS@lighthouse-academies.org.
