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!)


  1. The Great Outdoors have offered a 20% discount for any plant purchased for this project and it’s tax free.  Any plant listed for the project should be under $10.  Just mention the purchase is for Becker Elementary PTA to the cashier.
  2. If you wish to make a monetary donation, please email staceysteinacher [at] aol.com.
  3. Please sign up for what you plan to donate (plants, materials, or time) on Volunteer Spot  http://tinyurl.com/gardenbecker or email me at staceysteinacher [at] aol.com or sign up at the PTA Bulletin Board.   See below for a list of requested plants and materials needed for the garden.
  4. Drop off your plant, labeled with your name, on May 4 in the yard by the Chicken Coop.  Please do not drop off donations before this.
