William R Davie’s Teacher of The Year, Molly Connell, and her third grade class used some earned outside time to weed the garden.
They are using tools provided by grants from NC State Sigma Alpha Sorority and Energy United. The grants are helping to enhance the outside learning area.
Recently the fifth grade classes generated creative names for the garden. They were narrowed to four finalists and the entire student population voted. The name chosen was, “The Cardinal Legacy Garden,” submitted by Katie Dyson.
The fifth grade class leaving WRD each year will leave a new gift for the garden. This is a new tradition starting this year.
The WRD garden committee – Tina Dyson, Kayla Untz, Crystie Sherrill, Luwonna Oakes, Rex Allen, Brandy Copeland, Lou Wilson, Amanda Juhas and volunteer Master Gardener,Diane Salmon – have designed short- and long-range plans to create an inspiring outside classroom and garden. Anyone or organization interested in volunteering one week during the summer to help maintain the garden from becoming overgrown, contact the school as soon as possible.
