Kelly Dillon’s third grade class at Roanoke Avenue Elementary School enjoyed the spring weather by making improvements to their school’s Star Garden. The students removed debris, dug up weeds and planted colorful new flowers. They also added a garden flag purchased with the funds they had raised through a recycling campaign. The garden cleaning culminated a unit on persuasive writing in which the students expressed their thoughts on ways they can help the earth.
