Calling all Green Thumbed Bagers!

The PTO is "sprucing" up our entry way landscaping and we need your help.


  • We are seeking donations of plants that you are willing to split from your own yard. We are looking for Day Lilly's (both large and small) small shrubs and hosta but would consider others. Area gets part sun. Also seeking paver stones. Please email Melissa.kozak@merck.com with type and quantity of what you are willing to donate. You will need to split and bring to school on planting day.
  • We are in need of folks willing to come plant and clean up the front landscaping on Saturday, October 3rd from 11am -2pm. Even if you only have 1 hour to give please come and help. Bring your own garden tools and gloves. Thank you for helping make our school beautiful!
