During the last week of school, second grade students from Mrs. Schombs’ and Mrs. Miller’s class helped start a pollinator garden in the Harley Avenue courtyard. High school technology students in Mr. McGuire’s production systems class built the planter boxes for our students earlier in the month.

Planting native plants throughout the district is part of the Long Island Biodiversity Conservation grant that was given to the district from the Elwood Education Endowment.

Students planted butterfly weed & milkweed to attract monarch butterflies & fennel for black swallowtails. Students and teachers alike are excited to return in September to check for caterpillars, chrysalises, and butterflies.
