We have some exciting news to report about our CHES courtyards!
The Greater Virginia Green Building Council recently awarded Clover Hill Elementary a Curriculum Award in their “Connect the Dots for Green Schools Challenge” for our renovation efforts in the courtyards!
Also, James River Grounds Management has taken on the large courtyard as a community service project; they sent in a work crew on November 18th and will return in the spring to complete the project. They put down new weed control fabric, new gravel, and new sand in our Chesapeake Bayscape; they also fixed the deck, pruned the crepe myrtle, removed some dead plants, and added some bench seating. Students from the Environmental Committee helped place shells and driftwood to our bayscape; they will also help with some planting in the spring.
Thank you to GVGBC and James River Grounds Management!!!
