Alton Elementary School Second Graders collaborate with local business owner to brighten up Orono Commons with planters filled with beautiful annuals. Donna Lee Ayer, owner of Firefly Farm Landscaping (and Mrs. V’s mom) donated six packs, soil, and flower seeds for AES Second Graders to kick off their service learning project.  Students will grow these annuals in the school greenhouse until June when they will be transplanted into planters.  Mrs. Bosse is also collaborating on this project to help students paint the clay planters for the Orono Commons sunroom.  The planters will be delivered to Orono Commons when Alton Elementary School students perform their Spring Concert for Orono Commons residents in June.
