Preparing for the growing season


Siblings (left to right) Lucas Sukampo, Ashley Sukampo and Katelynn Sukampo joined a team of students, teachers and parents at Oak Woods School recently to work in the campus garden. The outdoor learning center was dedicated last May in memory of Kyra Olson, a second grader who passed away in January 2013 after fighting cancer. The garden and center will be used to enhance science instruction for students, according to principal Donnie Cody. The center was expanded in the fall through a grant from the Granbury ISD Education Foundation, which awarded $2,000 for the school to create a garden and butterfly habitat to engage students in project-based learning across all subject areas.
