The Knights Ferry School Kindergarten class went to the community garden to work last Wednesday. Alexa Boyajian’s grandparents, Laura and Eric Ray, donated adjustable rakes for each child. They had watched the Kinders try to rake with adult rakes and decided the class needed rakes just their size. The kids loved them. Bridgette Hobbs organized “thanks” bracelets for the students to make. Some children raked and some collected many snails to be relocated. Other students picked flowers for a bouquet, which was presented to Laura Ray. Deagan Sweet liked catching a tree frog. Grace Harden liked raking. Ben Cassinetto like the new rakes and Vincent Peterson liked making the bracelet and relocating the snails.
