The early morning rain couldn’t put a damper on the Big Dig at John H. Reagan Elementary as more than 200 volunteers from Sprouts and AT&T tramped through the mud to create a REAL School Garden at the small Oak Cliff campus.
Students got in on the act finishing up artwork and decorating colorful flagstone pavers that will lead students to hours of outdoor learning and exploration. Staff also lent a hand painting, coordinating, and beautifying the school that has a special meaning for so many.
“This was my school when I was little,” said Blanca Vazquez, Reagan’s fifth-grade science teacher and garden coordinator. “This is a special school, and we’re excited to see this happening.”
Two years in the making, students were eager to see their design, which they helped create, come to life.
