A huge thanks goes out to those families who came out over April vacation to help get the beds ready for planting: the Hale family, Hearst family, Bullock family, and Agosti family. The committee also wants to give shout outs to those local businesses that donated goods and time to our effort: Peter Breen and the Andover Flower Farm. The teachers have already started putting the garden to good use, so the biggest thanks goes to them and to the Sargent students for making it worthwhile. We’re planning to do a bit more work during the Spring clean-up so mark your calendars for more time gardening. We might even be able to munch on some fresh lettuce and radishes while we work.
Sargent School SPRING CLEANUP SATURDAY, MAY 19TH. As part of the Building Respectful Communities and R.A.I.S.E (Respect, Achievement, Inclusion, Service, and Empathy) initiative, Sargent families are asked to help us show Respect for our school by giving Service to it. On Saturday, May 19th, from 9 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., we will have our annual Spring Cleanup at the Sargent School. We will plant seasonal flowers, pick up litter and sticks, pull weeds, rake leaves, spread mulch, and clear fallen trees and brush from our outdoor curriculum area (“Woodland Study Area”). Please come prepared with work gloves, rakes, shovels, wheelbarrows, cultivators/weeding tools, clippers/loppers, and any other favorite yard tools. Donations of annual and perennial flowers are also appreciated. As a thank you for your time and efforts, pizza will be served to volunteers at the end of the cleanup.
