Penn Valley hosts Children's Garden Celebration
Penn Valley hosts Children's Garden Celebration

Penn Valley Elementary School recently hosted their annual Children's Garden Celebration – a special event honoring the lives and memories of two former students, Sarah Jane Gartland and Sean King, who passed away at a young age. The program also serves as an opportunity for the school community to celebrate life and the Spring season by singing, dancing and planting flowers in the school's Children's Garden.

Throughout the program, each grade performed a song before grade level representatives made their way out to the Children's Garden to plant flowers with the help of parent volunteers. Special thanks goes out to the Penn Valley Home & School Association (HSA) for their generous donation of plants and flowers for this event.
