Today is the State-Wide ACT testing day for high school juniors; sophomores will take the science CRT. Seniors can use the day to conduct a job shadow or perform community service off campus. Sentinel Seniors has specific community service they are performing today with The Missoula Downtown Partnership.
Under the direction of teacher Gary Stein, Sentinel High seniors will spend the morning working with the DMP and the Missoula Parking Commission on a few community service projects in Downtown.
“It’s always great to work with students, and we appreciate the efforts of Mr. Stein to engage all Sentinel High School seniors with community service projects,” said Linda McCarthy, Director of the Downtown Missoula Partnership.
Sentinel seniors will move the last of the “retired” parking meters out of storage in the Park Place Parking Garage to Habitat for Humanity ReStore, located in East Missoula. The last of the old meters have been donated to Habitat for Humanity for reselling at the store.
“The Missoula Downtown Foundation has benefited greatly from the sale of the retired parking meters,” said Anne Guest, President of the Missoula Downtown Foundation Board of Directors. “After raising over $28,000 from the sale of meters since 2016, it is time for us to pay it forward to another organization and let them benefit from the public’s affection for the meters.”
Folks interested in purchasing a meter can visit the ReStore at 3655 Highway 200 East or call 549-8210.
Sentinel seniors will also do some spring cleaning tasks in and around the Downtown parking garages, including:
- Clean on-street parking kiosks and solar panels
- Sweep, mop and clean windows in the garage towers
- Wipe down/polish railings and bollards
- Sweep out and polish elevators
- Sweep/rake old leaves and needles in the river lots
- Pick up micro trash in the river lots
