Flu Vaccines Available!

Stopping the Flu Starts with You

School season is prime time for classes, homework, sports … and the flu. With the flu virus most active from October to May, getting vaccinated is the #1 way to prevent the flu and the fever, sore throat, body aches, and even serious health complications it can cause. We are partnering with the Chester County Health Department to offer a flu shot clinic to community members.

Earth and Garden Club

Greenwood Elementary School’s Earth and Garden Club was the idea of Mrs. Erika Slowik and Mrs. Sarah Thorne-Locke. Both teachers enjoyed the passion of gardening and wanted to revive the garden in the courtyard of the school. At the time it was somewhat of an eyesore. Initially, Mrs. Slowik had started “The Knowledge Garden” with her classes and when Mrs. Thorne-Locke came on board shortly thereafter, they decided to start a club for students with similar outdoor interests. Members of the Earth and Garden Club

The Earth and Garden Club is open to fourth and fifth grade students. Over the years, about 15-20 students have participated, but currently, more than 30 students are enrolled with several more on a waiting list! The purpose of the club is for students to get outside and spend time learning about and exploring nature.

To date, the group has completed several projects including completing arts and crafts, painting and photography, making bird feeders, and caring for native plants. Every spring and fall, the club is responsible for cleaning plant beds, plants seeds and new plants, and for the watering and tending of the gardens. This year, the club has planted five dwarf apple trees near the outdoor play space! Greenwood Elementary School now has it’s very own orchard! We are thankful that we have such wonderful stewards of our environment.
