John F. Kennedy Montessori School

The science teacher at JFK, Ms. Holthouser, keeps raised bed vegetable gardens and butterfly waystations with the students in the playground at the school. The teachers and administration at the school were really interested in having more trees in the playground area for study and shade and to support the vegetable and butterfly gardens. The students are really excited about their 25 new trees and have been hands-on in caring for the trees. The students have been helping to weed and mulch the area around the new trees. Ms. Holthouser has committed to keeping the trees watered over the summer months.
