Letter to the Editor


One of our 5th grade exhibition groups took on the issue of women’s rights. Celia, Prior, and Abby wrote a letter to the Des Moines Register and were published in the April 20th edition of the Register. Check out their article on the opinion page!


In Memory of Anita Richey


Check out the new picnic table in the north end of the garden. It was donated in memory of Anita Richey. She was the great grandmother of Myles and Kayla Butts. Anita was here every single day after school picking up her grandchildren. Sadly she passed away early this year. She loved to sit out on the playground under the blue awning and read while waiting on the kids to get out of school. She always let Doug know when it was time to put that awning up every year! J Along with the donation of the picnic table we were able to purchase some books for the Library. Hopefully you will enjoy having lunch or reading at the new picnic table in the Garden. Thank you to the Richey-Butts family.
