Carton 2 Garden - Helping Grow School Garden Programs Vanderlyn awarded $2,500 for
winning Carton 2 Garden Contest!


Congratulations to our school for being awarded as a Carton 2 Garden contest winner for Spring 2015! Wednesday, August 19, Vanderlyn was honored and presented with a $2,500 check as a National Carton 2 Garden project winner. We were 1 of the 2 elementary schools nationally to receive this award. Thank you to Ms. Bogis and our STEM co-chair, Karen Baker, for pulling off such an amazing project for our children!

The school was full of excitement when the Carton 2 Garden crew arrived on Wednesday! The walls were filled with pictures of the children working on the project and butterfly artwork hung everywhere. Thank you to the administration, staff, and PTO volunteers for pulling off a fantastic and welcoming event. And a BIG congratulations to the school for winning this award!
