  Earth Day
  Joy James Elementary’s Student Council members celebrated Earth Day by beautifying our “Sowing Seeds and Reaping Knowledge” garden. The garden courtyard area was originally redone in 2013 when Joy James applied for and received a grant from Lowe’s Toolbox for Education. It has been our secret get-away ever since.

With the guidance of sponsors; Barbara Baganz and Vickie Gordon, Student Council has been maintaining the courtyard for the past two years. They take great pride when students, staff, family and community members pass through the breezeway and get a glimpse of the beautiful flowers, the rock river, the pergola, gazeebo and the brightly colored umbrellas.

On sunny days, the umbrellas go up and our students and staff can enjoy lunch in the garden. The courtyard also provides a serene setting for outdoor classrooms and learning opportunities. We want to thank our StuCo members, sponsors and family members who came out and helped. It has become an important part of our campus where learning is inspired and memories are created.
