Cleanup of Wickman’s butterfly garden, which had been neglected and overrun with weeds and plants, has been completed!
Four young ladies pictured here (left to right: Elle Scranton, Lucy Landherr, Natalia Toher, Ella Mobarak) and other students, worked for months during their free time to remove weeds, debris, and overgrown plants. They collaborated on plans to improve the look and use of the area. They asked for support from the school custodian, Mr. James Green, who helped them with ideas. In addition, the team ended up getting the support from the school administration as well as the district maintenance dept. The result: an area that kept the original design of the space, but is updated and can be used as an outdoor classroom space. Find our beautiful area adjacent to the school library where it will be used as an outdoor reading area as well. Future plans include adding benches and shade when funds become available.
