Our 1st grade students had an opportunity to help plant a beautiful new garden in the front of the school today. A butterfly garden was brought to Willowbrook School courtesy of the district’s Environmental Awareness Committee. Committee representative Melanie Roth and 5th grade teacher Heidi Fletcher provided the necessary planning and scheduling for the project. Math and science coordinators, Kery Obradovich and Kristin Goss were also involved. Over 250 plants were placed in the ground by students. Their work was guided by local botanist, Rob Sulski.

Additional planting will be done in the fall. We hope this garden attracts butterflies to Willowbrook School in years to come. It will support our 1st grade Life Science Unit and bring beauty to the area around our flag pole. Our next step is find an appropriate marker identifying the purpose of the garden for the larger community.
