Throughout two weeks in October, third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students at Meadowbrook Elementary School, in the East Meadow School District, have been helping to tidy up the garden in front of the school building. 

Led by Assistant Principal Gail Gallucci, students were tasked with digging out weeds and other materials in the garden areas at the front of the school building. The process helped to showcase the flowers and trees that have been planted in front of the building while also teaching students about the responsibility of grooming a garden. Each of the three grades came together during three different sessions to tackle different areas of cleaning up.

The cleanup lesson also was intended to help beautify the entrance of the building ahead of the school’s fall festival on October 20.
