We had a great turn out for the Hawthorne II and Essex Garden Clean Up on Saturday, May 4th! The crew worked hard on clearing the beds, weeding the garden, building a new inground bed and setting up a new deck box to hold all the gardening tools. Great job, everyone! Thanks goes to Fiesta Farms for their generous donation of 35 bags of compost and soil!
Sheila Grantham (Gr 1) and Catherine Cyr (Gr 2/3) will be organizing the planting schedule for the classes at Hawthorne II and Essex over the next couple of weeks.
Yard Waste: The bags of yard waste have been left in the school garden since there is no yard waste collection. If you live nearby, could bring a bag back to your house for collection on Garbage / Recycling Collection Day on Wednesday night of this week?
Found: There was a blue vest left at the clean up so, if this belongs to you, please contact Irene Toye-Nakamura at firstname.lastname@example.org.
