  • School Garden Starts 

     
    Students hard at work NPE has undertaken two school garden projects at the end of the school year. The first is a lengthy bed of perennials in the front of the building. The second is a vegetable garden by our parent pick up area. The purpose of both projects is to 1) beautify the school campus and 2) provide outdoor education and learning opportunities for students. It is impressive how quickly students and staff have finished both projects. Even more impressive have been the generous contributions of students, staff, community members, and local businesses to make this happen. We have laid the groundwork to extend these projects even further in future years.
