I think this is great. A church sprucing up a public school. No problem. And. . .as a former Evangelical. . .I would like a bit more conversation about the intention. Helping is helping, and should be commended. If there is any intention of drawing members, or “blessing the school with bibles” or something. . .then of course there would be church/state problems (and, I would say, ethical problems). Otherwise, “rather than point a finger, lend a hand!”
