Students and staff met at Sexton High School Friday to make it a little more attractive before school starts.

The whole football team helped in the beautification project, too. They cleaned up and put down wood chips at school entrance.

Staff say the project's goal was to teach students the importance of giving back.

"We wanted to get outside grounds to match what's going on inside the school, with the idea of involving the community, our neighborhood, some businesses, to help kids understand how to give back to the community and how we're going green together," said Sonya Lewis, a seventh grade teacher.

Students First Michigan, Men Making a Difference, and State Rep. Andy Schor (D-Lansing) helped organize the event. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
