2001 - Education Awards - Beautification & Landscaping - West Nichols Hills Elementary

  Martha Swope was delighted to accept the KOB award of excellence for West Nichols Hills
While the landscaping committee at West Nichols Hills Elementary consists of adults, they’ve wisely kept the students at the core of their extensive planting and clean-up projects for the past four years.

The before and after pictures show the dramatic improvements made with completely renovated flower beds, a new butterfly garden and the addition of 26 new trees. But the less-visible student activities are just as important.

Every student participates in a spring clean-up and learns how to plant a bulb. Ten older students give butterfly garden tours to all the other students who can watch butterflies develop from caterpillars.

The judges said it was “a beautiful way to take the classroom outdoors and teach living environmental concern.”

FOR EDUCATION AND BEAUTIFICATION, WEST NICHOLS HILLS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IS GOOD NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA’S ENVIRONMENT!
