In the fall 5th graders designed and carried out a Black Lives Matter flag raising ceremony and wanted to finish the year with a project speaking to the same issues.
Every 5th grader painted a river stone with different shades of flesh tone paint, then printed a word or slogan exemplifying their hopes for a better world.
The tree planting was a culmination of a unit on soil health and composting.
Horsford Gardens and Nursery in Charlotte donated and delivered to Flynn the 20 ft Sugar Maple tree.
