After hosting a successful fun run fundraiser earlier this year, the Parent-Teacher Association at Mills Pond Elementary School used the funds to purchase three hydroponic tower gardens for the school.

Fifth graders in Mrs. Connors’ class, fourth graders in Mrs. Taylor and Mrs. Zbytniewski’s class and third graders in Mrs. Polito’s class participated in a cultural arts program on April 15 where they learned about hydroponic gardening and built a hydroponic tower garden. Classes will be caring for the gardens on a daily basis and the gardens will be shared across the grade levels. According to Principal Ireen Westrack, if the program is successful, the PTA plans to purchase one tower for each grade level.
