Haine Middle School student are learning how to make positive changes in their environment—including at the front entrance to their school.
On Friday, Oct. 26, the fifth and sixth graders, plus staff members, planted 180 tulips in front of their school as part of “Make-A-Difference” Day.
The students also read A Child's Garden, A Story of Hope by Michael Foreman and discussed its message of healing and renewal. The school planted the tulips as a way to show how to "make a difference" at the school and in the community, according to the district.
Teachers Ken Cahall and John Schmidt, along with several fifth and sixth grade students, also planted a new tree in the front of the school. The tree replaced an old tree damaged by lighting several years ago.
