Last year, our accomplishments included:
- Starting a vegetable garden for the students (6 large beds and 2 small ones)
- Teaching organic gardening to students
- Planting 6 fruit trees with all of the 5th graders.
- 12 new trees were planted by the playscape on Merrilltown Dr. with irrigation
- 2 grants for our projects
- Organizing a wonderful Earth Day PTA Event
- Completing several beautification projects, including the walker dismissal with benches and native plants
- Working with Eagle Scouts to beautify the courtyard
- Started a monthly afterschool Green Club with students
- Putting up "No Idling" signs for car drivers who drop-off/pick-up their children. Read more about the No Idling campaign here.
We are very proud of our accomplishments and feel that we are making a visible difference for our students and parents at Wells Branch Elementary.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about volunteering or being a part of the Green Team.
Thanks so much,
