“We Support Our Schools” April 2023

A2Z Personnel and the Drive 107.9 had the pleasure of presenting Leanne Deschamps with the “We Support Our Schools” grant for April 2023!

Leanne teaches high school English at Florence Carlton High School and will use this grant money for a special project that she and her students have been preparing for quite some time.
Leanne and her students have been researching different plants and flowers to plant in the exterior of the High School entrance that was disrupted during remodeling construction. They’ve taken into consideration hardiness zones, plants that resist deer and drought, and which plants are good pollinators. They have also looked at when different flowers bloom, and changing leaf color for fall. Leanne’s class decided on plants that take variable amounts of sun such as shade loving Bleeding Hearts, Hosta and ferns. They also chose an Ivory Halo Dogwood bush that has deep red bark when the leaves are bare in the winter. The students started some of these plants at school in March in their Environmental Science class and will have beautiful plants ready to go outside on May 24th.

This is a lovely class project that will give back to their classmates and community for many years to come.

Thank you, Leanne Deschamps for all your positive contributions to the Florence School students! We are excited for you to make great use of the We Support our Schools’ grant!
