Students planting in the garden

School Garden Builds Sense of Community

On Thursday, May 18, Mrs. Hackett’s 4th period 7th graders and The Black Student Union teamed up with The Home and School Association to plant in the school garden. Students planted to encourage tradition and a sense of community connecting the activity to the reading of “Brown Girl Dreaming” by Jacqueline Woodson and African-American culture and heritage. Thank you to Sandi Spindler who volunteered to lead in the process.
