Daisy Girl Scout Troop #1108, a group of first grade and transitional first grade students, came to campus during the summer to support Environmental Science Teacher Linda Cauley by caring for the gardens. The troop’s efforts at Lamplighter were part of their work on the Daisy Flower Garden Leadership Journey, an award that focuses on the leadership philosophy of girls discovering themselves and their values when connecting and taking action. The Daisy Scouts took part in clearing rocks from the gardens, filling their pails, and delivering rocks to the nature path by the bird observation area. Members of the troop also added clean water to the bird bath and transferred fruit and vegetable scraps into the compost bins. Most of all, the Scouts enjoyed watering throughout the gardens!
In addition to the work of Girl Scout Troop #1108, several Lamplighter parents provided gardening support throughout the summer. A special thank you to: Kristin, Matthew, and Thomas Fay; Claire and Matthew Gordon; Heather Roseberry, Nina and Sadie Ohler; and Shanna, Shelby, and Max Steen. The School is grateful for the work of these families in watering and misting all of the potted plants and mints, clearing rocks from the gardens and compost, and cleaning and refilling the bird bath and deadheaded flowers.
