13 Nov SMCDS Buddies Plant Bulbs
On a sunny Thursday, November 13, our Middle School students helped their Early Childhood buddies plant bulbs for the spring. Our students planted 1639 bulbs to commemorate the year the City of Newport was founded. This is the second year that St. Michael’s Country Day School students have participated in the Daffodillion Campaign for Newport. The Campaign began as a way to recognize Newport’s 375th Anniversary. Our Student Leadership Board raised the money to join at the Founders Member level last year. We are grateful to the Wellness Committee for supporting our effort at the Founders Member level this year. The blooms will be visible this spring throughout our campus. You’ll also see them along the stone wall on Rhode Island Avenue and on the corner of Gibbs and Memorial Blvd.
