The Front Yard

I want to let everyone know that RHE is getting a makeover this summer! As we all know, the front yard floods terribly after it rains and often branches and debris are left behind. At the end of June crews will be installing drain basins underground and redoing the landscaping and grass. This is a huge project that will make our school even more beautiful. Why am I telling you this? There are a lot of children who play in the landscaping and close to the building after school. In an effort to keep our current and new landscaping alive, we are asking for children to play in the grass areas only. Quite often children are in the garden beds with the shrubs and plants. If we start breaking the habit of playing in the landscaping now, it will be natural for them to stay out of it next fall.
