Garden Clean Up Day Two

Thanks to the Sunday crew who made a huge dent in the weeding of the Davis garden! It is starting to look like a real garden again! And look what they found hiding under all of those weeds! Just in time for Halloween!

Fall in the Garden

Hello teachers and families!
We are moving forward on our garden and wanted to update you all. We have a group of 17 parents who have volunteered to help us weed the garden in preparation for the construction of our raised beds. Thank you all for getting on board before we can actually even do any planting!
We hope to see our cleaned out raised beds ready to plant before winter arrives. In the next few weeks teachers who are interested in having a bed in which to plant will let us know so we can make sure everyone who wants to plant with Davis kids will have a space. Then teachers will contact our volunteers and make a plan for what they hope to do with their classes.
We are all looking forward to gardening once again with our Davis kids!

Coming Soon!

We hope to meet with some landscapers in the next few weeks to have them help us build our raised beds, install a fence and clear the beds for  fall planting. Mrs. Davies and a group of teachers from Davis as well as parent volunteers will hopefully be able to assist classrooms in planting once the beds and garden are ready! And thanks to a local Daisy troop for making our beautiful sign!

Earth Day Planting

Some students at Davis School participated in a special Earth Day celebration. The entrance to our school now looks beautiful thanks to a bunch of first and second graders!
Mrs. Kimball-Dorey described the project: "The flowers and rocks were done when five classes participated in an Earth Day celebration the Friday after April vacation. We hope to decorate rocks every year and add to the growing borders around the front of the building. "
Thanks to all of the classrooms who helped make our school and gardens look great!
