TUPELO, Miss. (WCBI) – Thanks to a grant and some dedicated volunteers, the courtyard of a Tupelo elementary school is getting a much needed facelift.

Some fifty volunteers converged on Lawhon Elementary school to update its courtyard.

Lowes Home Improvement provided a $5,000 grant to purchase the materials, and volunteers are providing the labor.

They are mostly faculty parents and students of Lawhon.

These volunteers are completing the work started a few years ago with a grant from Association for Excellence in Education.

They say the courtyard update is going to be an ongoing project throughout the school year.
