April News Brief 2009

April 9, 2009

Dear Parents,  

We are gleefully shedding winter wraps for spring sunshine and warm breezes.   Our new garden berms are beginning to respond in kind as well with profusion of crocuses and other bulbs emerging.  With these auspicious omens in view, we’re ready to tackle the next phase of our Project Outdoors (Memorial Garden and Wildlife Habitat).  

We have set aside Saturday, May 2 and Saturday, May 9 as community volunteer gardening days.  We’ll be planting, transplanting, raking, and hopefully installing some new features within our garden.   You may come anytime, but we’ll meet at 9:00AM and work until 3:00. PM  Bring a bag lunch and some drinks.  

There are many ways to show support.  On the back of this letter we’re attaching a list of plants that you may either purchase or pledge to.  These are gifts that beautify our schoolyard and leave a lasting legacy for our future students, family members and teachers, to inspire their students or simply enjoy the environs.   

We’d like to acknowledge with appreciation all the work that has already been done by parent volunteers in putting in gardens and establishing a natural stone patio.  To you all, we’d love to have you back, and if you haven’t as yet participated but would like to, here’s your chance.  

Please contact Nancy Hall or me if you would like more information and we look forward to seeing you.  Have a safe and restful vacation.
