My Students

Our students, families, teachers, and community are an amazing group of people. They care so much and have huge hearts. We have recently lost one of our students to a tragic accident. We also lost 2 students to cancer over 3 years ago. Each year we hold a back to school celebration where we remember them and celebrate their lives. After the loss of our third student at the beginning of this year, the school decided to have a permanent symbol of these students at our school. We want to plant a tree for each student that will bloom and grow each year in their memory. We would also like to add a bench and a plaque.

My Project

We have been blessed with so many great students over our years. We have seen them grow and are so proud of all they accomplished, and continue to accomplish. We even have a former student as a teacher here! Sadly, we have also had three of our students pass away. We will never forget them! In memory of the love and light they brought to our school, we want to plant 3 trees, 1 for each of them. These trees will represent their spirit and they will bloom and grow in our garden as reminders. Please help us plant these living memories.
