OSWEGO, NY – The weather might be getting cooler, but that didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t stop students from the Frederick Leighton Elementary School from beautifying their grounds.
Mary Pryor of FLS Home and School Association said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Inna Loayza, a Leighton parent, spearheaded and organized a spring bulb planting at our school.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Recently, outside of every classroom the ground was prepared and students each placed a flower bulb in the narrow trench. They then covered the bulbs with dirt and many students jumped up and down firmly placing the dirt around the flower bulbs.
Loayza said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“It was a great job by everyone. I am so, so proud of our work together. It was not easy for teachers to organize every class to come out and plant, but the students were so well behaved. I hope the bulbs grow to be beautiful spring flowers to make us all smile some more.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Principal Julie Burger said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“This was a wonderful project. Students learned about bulbs, experienced the process of planting them and the entire school community will share in the joy of their creation this coming spring.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The event was a tremendous cooperative effort and supporting it were Leighton Home and School Association, Loayza and the Rainbow Garden Committee, LoweÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s of Oswego and Ontario Orchards.
