Outdoor Club enters "Carton2Garden" contest

Students in 4th grade and the “Outdoor Club” are helping the earth by entering a contest sponsored by the Evergreen Packaging company called Carton 2 Garden. If accepted as a top winner they could earn $2,500 or garden supplies for Prairie Grove!

These students have collected over 200 cartons to be reused as recycled flower pots later to be planted in a garden they named “Reading with Nature”. The name was chosen because this is a garden for Mrs. O’Leary to inspire students to read outside.
