Orchard Students Planted 1000 Tulips to Make a Positive Impact in the Community
Earlier this year, Orchard science teacher Mrs. P challenged first graders to think of ways they could help the community. One idea emerged was that flowers would make people feel happy. The group decided to do a beautification project with tulips! They found space in Orchard's parking lot to plant one thousand tulips. Finally, they sketched a plan, did the math, and dug their hands in the dirt to lay the groundwork for a beautiful display.
Originally, these flowers were going to be passed out to teachers during Teacher & Staff Appreciation Day, now they will delivered to residents of a local nursing home.
What a lovely way to help our larger Indianapolis community, and to share the love that continues to make Orchard such a special place.
