Members of the Desert Lutheran Church provided a helping hand to a local school Saturday.

Church members spent the day remodeling a portable classroom for Gridley Middle School. 

Dozens of volunteers jointed Pastor Jim Cords in creating a better environment for students. 

They not only repainted the walls but created a new layout for the classroom. 

A second classroom will include a reading corner, art corner and quiet corner.

The school is also replacing the ramp to the classroom.

Artists are painting a mural of a grizzly bear, the school's mascot, on the outside of the classroom. 

Cords hopes all the work will be done before classes resume Tuesday.
