The PTA and the Blackbird Paradise Garden Committee have been working to update the garden behind the Elementary School. This Spring we are seeking perennials to plant along the outside of the garden fence. A local landscape designer has mapped out the garden and suggested some local/native plants that would work well in the space. As you are are dividing plants and prepping your own gardens, would you please consider donating some of your extras. Store bought plants are appreciated as well. Please visit the link to sign up: Blackbird Paradise Garden

  • Yearbook Committee The 2016-2017 Yearbook Committee will be holding its first meeting in the Library on Thursday January 12, 2017 at 6pm. We are looking for volunteers, no experience necessary, just a willingness to work with a team to put out a great yearbook.

The picture quality is better with a camera so those are preferred, but we can try any pictures you may have taken. Thank you in advance, any help is appreciated! Please feel ...
