Starting the week of April 22, 2019, the Landscaping class at Centralia High School began working on the design for a landscaping project that would improve the entrance of the Centralia Head Start.
The CHS National Honor Society students went to the Centralia Head Start on April 13, 2019, and helped add new wood chips to the front of the building. Scott Stone, CHS agriculture teacher, also donated some plants to the project. National Honor Society and the Landscaping class worked together to make the building more appealing and safe.
The Landscaping class worked on designs for Head Start and started the actual project on April 23, 2019. The group worked on the project in April and was finished mid-May. The students worked during class. Specifically, the Landscaping class tore out the old flower beds and installed new landscaping features, such as plants. Alongside Mr. Stone, Ms. Bruns, CHS ag instructor, and her Landscaping class joined his advanced Animal Science class to get the job done.
Stone and Bruns are working together to make an impact in our area. “We feel it is a great opportunity to help those in our community,” explained Stone. The class is doing more than making the building safe and appealing. The Head Start receives money every time someone volunteers at their building. This will help the school pay for better supplies to educate the children.
