              The Meadow May Be Sleeping....
                       But We're Not!


        Kelly Green Receives PWD grant
    to fund design and engineering work!


          Following many conversations and planning hours, Kelly Green                      was approved for its first major grant from the PWD.

         The work will determine best locations for water remediation
           efforts on the schoolyard and help develop a final plan.  

                           Stay tuned in the future for updates!  

 

                        Kelly Green Project
            Completes Its Recyclebank Goal!  


- 376 friends contributed their Recyclebank points! 
- Kelly Green will receive $2500 for improving outdoor learning opportunities   in the meadow!


     Many thanks to all who helped in this year's effort!  




 

         We're Growing Things! (Already)


Under the leadership of neighbor and Kelly Green friend Camille Poinvill,
six classrooms are using grow lights to jump start the garden season.


        

                First up:  wheat grass!  Used in smoothies for all to taste.  



    Weekly visits help students learn about plants, the importance of fresh           food and how to prepare for planting in the garden.     Go Camille!

 


                Kelly Teachers Receive
                 Picasso Project Grant!
 
   
 

Art teacher Dana Hoffman and Music teacher Elizabeth Aron received a $5000 grant to build an outdoor PVC pipe organ to be installed on the Schoolyard!  

The project will involve 4th graders and local artist Mindy Flexner in a multi-disciplinary effort to discover how the art, science and music all interact. 

                               Dedication planned for May 23rd. Join us!

                                 

    Jefferson University joins in the fun!


A great group of volunteers spent an afternoon helping with much needed bed repairs...



...and joining Camille in the Garden Club program on a regular basis is Claire Byrnes (on the right, below)



                        Thanks Jeff U. friends... and Claire in particular! 

               
              GoFundMe Still Available!


Check it out. (Worth it just in case you haven't seen the great video!)

We're still in need of funds to keep programs alive...and to keep our amazing landscape architect Sarah Endriss of Asarum LandDesign with us. Thanks!
