Thank You – Spring Clean Up Day Photos!

SpringCleanGrounds_2015 (30)Before school let out  for the summer, did you get a chance to take a peek around to school grounds to enjoy the new plants and freshly mulched garden areas?

The school entry will now have some color in the fall, the Candace Carmichael Memorial Garden is weeded and sporting additional greenery, a hosta garden is a new addition to east playground hill, and we began the work of adding plants to the building’s south side.  A huge thank you to the families who donated plants and to the many parents and students who started their Saturday with some hard work and good company.  More than thirty people (as well as coffee, donuts, orange juice and popsicles) made this all possible.  We look forward to returning in the fall to some new colors on the school grounds.

Mrs. Cannon sends a message along to all who helped out – “Thank you!  The plants and grounds look beautiful!!!”

Another work day will be scheduled for August so make sure to like the Horn PTO on Facebook to stay in the loop.
