Native Species Learning Garden
In partnership with the Nature Conservancy and the Nature Works Everywhere Grant, as well as EPNO Grant, the PTA is working towards re-inventing the courtyard as a Learning Garden with native plant species and pollinators, as well as space to allow for instruction. Work parties are being scheduled so make sure you put us on your calendar!
Kelly Playground – Nature-scaping – Natural Play Structures
In December of 2018, Kelly Elementary PTA was awarded a $75,000.00 Grant to Re-Furbish Kelly Elementary’s Playground!
Our improvement project will begin in the spring of 2018 and we will be working together as a community to help with design and installation efforts that include:
De-paving areas of the playground to allow for planting shade trees and benches.
Installing a natural play structure and swings for increased opportunities for imaginative play and motor skills development.
Adding additional planting beds and picnic tables.
The addition of shade trees and seating on the playground.
Our students have written passionately about wanting more options for play to the teachers and to the administration, and we are about to make those dreams come true, but we are going to need YOUR HELP!
We are so excited to be bringing new ways of playing and learning to Kelly Elementary!
