Take Home A Piece of ACMA’s Greenery!
When our building is torn down to be replaced this summer that also means they will be tearing out all of our plants! ACMA’s Green Team would like to save them! Want to spruce up your yard or create something beautiful?
What: We have LOADS of lavender, day-lilies, daffodils, hyacinth, irises, roses, and more! Bring the pots you would like them put into or we have some extra plastic ones to fit them for you. ACMA’s Green Team will help you dig up the plants you want and take them home.
When: After school on June 10th, 11th, and 13th or during the day on June 17th and June 18th.
Where: Meet in Mr. Reed’s room 148 or find the people running around outside with shovels.
How much: We ask for you to decide on your own amount to be donated to the ACMA Green Team to further help us in making ACMA greener with recycling and a new garden area at Timberland.
E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to set up a time to meet.
