Community partners contribute to HES courtyard garden

Fourth-grade students at Harwich Elementary School recently participated in a project to build, paint, and install a dozen birdhouses in the school’s courtyard garden. Volunteers from Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects Builders donated their time to help the students build and paint the birdhouses, and then worked with students to place and install the birdhouses in the courtyard garden area. The birdhouse materials were part of a grant from The Garden Club of Harwich to recertify the Harwich Elementary School garden as a National Wildlife Federation Schoolyard Habitat.

This year, nearly 500 MRMS students and staff traveled to the Providence Performing Arts Center to experience “Phantom of the Opera” – the longest-running Broadway musical ever produced!
