A big thank you to Cub Scouts Pack 123 under the direction of Scout Leader Chris Kilander for their work on our school landscaping. The Scouts spent hours pouring mulch, planting flowers, setting up flower pots, pulling weeds, and much more in order to make our school landscaping look beautiful for the spring and summer.
We appreciate the Scouts and all of their hard work!
