What better way to celebrate Earth Day April 22 than to have students in Annette Rothman’s kindergarten class at Park Elementary School in Holbrook get the ground ready to plant flowers? They began by removing all grasses in the flower box around the marquee. While the students enjoyed digging in the dirt, they had the added pleasure of discovering what they called “rolly-polys,” also known as pill bugs. Among those working on the project were (left to right) Jonathan Griego-Harper, Julie Dundon, Rothman, Trinity Hollins and Aurora Mohlow.
