F.E. Bellows Elementary School third-graders, teachers and PTSA Garden Club representatives continued their work on the school’s “Life Garden” by planting annuals, perennials and other flowers on May 16.

They had been working together to revive the garden since April when they pulled weeds, spread mulch and prepared flower beds. Over the next several weeks, the students will plant seeds, while fourth-graders will plant additional flowers along the perimeter of the flower beds. As part of their “legacy project” before they transition from F.E. Bellows Elementary School to Rye Neck Middle School, fifth-graders will each paint one rock from the rock bed with a quote or saying.
