Thanks to parents Tiffany and James Garcia (parents of Crosby in grade 2), our butterfly garden is blossoming! With the help of some funding through the Westlake Council of PTAs Council Garden Sponsorship Fundraiser and the WES PTA, they were able to purchase some butterfly-attracting plants and flowers, along with some decor. A special thanks to Wild Birds Unlimited who donated a garden stake with a rain gauge holder, Kim McCue who donated a new hose & spray nozzle and Christine Wrightsman who purchased a bird/butterfly bath for the garden.
Bodhi the therapy dog has made quite an impact on students at Dover Intermediate School. Bodhi’s handler is Shannon Basile who is a 6th-grade social studies teacher here at DIS. His presence has brought a calming effect to students at Dover Intermediate School.
Last month, volunteers came together to help properly place, level and fill all of the vegetable garden beds at Westlake Elementary School. Thanks to them, our vegetable garden beds look amazing! Thank you volunteers.
