The 2017 5th grade graduation gift is a beautification project for the outdoor learning center in the Foothill courtyard. This year, a local artist painted the courtyard wall and colorful tables were placed outside for 3rd - 5th graders to enjoy their lunch outdoors.
Parents, staff and students worked together to build a raised flower bed and plant flowers selected for seasonal beauty and interest. In addition to improving the courtyard environment, the new garden space creates an opportunity for students to participate in the creation and maintenance of a garden.
The 5th grade class created a dedication for the garden:
"You'll have a good year
full of Foothill cheer
because life is good
in the Foothill 'hood"
A great big thank you to so many that helped, including Erin Westfall, Patrick Westfall, CJ Davis, Paul Hourihan, Josh Feister, Almir Omervic and Tessa Hale. This project would not have been possible without donations from Home Depot and Lee Hill Peat.
The Foothill Elementary PTO welcomes all Foothill parents, students and staff to contribute their thoughts and ideas to our blog.
