Parent Weekend Planting Project: Back by Popular Demand
By Kelly Pasciucco P’10,’13; Greenwich, CT, and Phyllis Powers P’09,’13; East Sandwich, MA
The Deerfield Parents Network is thrilled to announce that we will be hosting the second Annual Bulb Planting on Saturday, October 13 from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. during Parents Fall Weekend. As part of our First Link Program, we will once again connect new families with current Deerfield parents by gardening together in carefully laid-out areas on campus. Our first planting was tremendously successful, as evidenced by the friendships fostered that autumn morning and the colorful daffodils and tulips that bloomed in the spring.
In addition to the Bulb Planting we would also like to reach out to our local community and host a Book Drive for the elementary school in Greenfield, MA. We invite you to bring a book with you on Parents Weekend and drop it off in the designated area by the Bulb Planting Tent on campus. Deerfield continues to teach social responsibility to our children, and we, as parents, support their efforts and hope these endeavors will not only create a strong bond within our parent network, but simultaneously help support Deerfield’s mission.
We welcome all parents, new and old, to participate in both projects during the weekend. The DPN is coordinating the planting program with Denise Dwelley at the Physical Plant and will continue to put in place a multi-year plan for planting zones on campus. To volunteer for the project, please email event coordinators Kelly Pasciucco or Phyllis Powers. View the complete Parents Fall Weekend schedule.
