Mrs. Wood’s 1st grade class at Riverbend Elementary celebrated Earth Day earlier this month. Students learned all about parts of a plant and what those plants need to survive and thrive. At the end of the week, students and their parents helped to beautify Riverbend’s campus by planting some gorgeous plants provided by Grass Root Gardens of Waynesville. The class and their teachers would like to give a huge thank you to Grass Root Gardens for their generous donation of the plants. The students were able to enjoy a very fun and successful end to their plant unit with the help of Grass Root Gardens.
