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.
