Thank You.png

Thank you to Jen Edwards and Family, Casey Schwartz and Family and Max Castor, Tulita Alumni for their teamwork in creating Tulita's FRIENDSHIP GARDEN!

 

The Tulita PTA is very proud to announce their first installment of the campus beautification projects planned for 2015-16.  Over the Holiday Break our Campus Beautification team came together to plant a Friendship Garden and install a Buddy Bench on the upper playground.  Max Castor, Tulita Alumni, volunteered his time by designing, planning and building the buddy bench while working toward his Eagle Scout award.  The Buddy Bench will hopefully nurture and foster friendships in a garden that will be a welcoming place for children to go in search of a playmate. Please stay tuned for upcoming opportunities to help grow our garden and join together in our Tulita Community to help foster lasting friendships! Questions regarding campus beautification?  Please contact Jen Edwards at Tulitaptaartseducation@gmail.com

 

THANK YOU ! You  all rock and the PTA greatly appreciates your help!!
