Help Plant a Garden! April 28 and May 5

Teacher Appreciation week is quickly approaching!  We would like to honor the wonderful Becker Staff with a Staff Appreciation Garden.  It will be a low maintenance earth friendly garden on the south side of the school where we go in for drop off.

Help show the Becker Staff how much we love them by: donating a plant to the garden, volunteering your time, and/or making a monetary donation (we will pick up the plant or materials to save you time!)
