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.

Allie Volunteers Time at Faithful Friends

Allie Ross, a fifth grade student in Dr. Jon Kilpatrick’s class, has recently started volunteering with her mother every Sunday at Faithful Friends, a dog and cat rescue in Wilmington, DE. Allie had been looking for a place that would accept kids as volunteer and her mom was finally able to find the rescue.photo of Allie

This year, the theme of Greenwood Elementary School’s book fair was “Paws for Books” and Allie thought that this would be a great way to give back to the cause near and dear to her heart. She recruited some friends to help and together they organized a donation drive to benefit Faithful Friends. Over the duration of the book fair, Allie was able to collect an abundance of food, toys, and treats for the rescued cats and dogs! Great job Allie!
