The Durham Elementary Courtyard Project began in the summer of 2009. It has been the long time vision of our staff, inspired by Retta Wilmarth (retired 2nd grade teacher), that we make the Courtyard at Durham Elementary School a beautiful place for learning. The culmination of this year long project will take place on April 29, 2010 with a Courtyard Ribbon Cutting ceremony. Durham Elementary will honor all of the hard work of the volunteers, our "Royal Court of the Courtyard," that brought this vision to life.
Ribbon Cutting Ceremony held April 29, 2010
The weather was perfect for our Courtyard Ribbon Cutting Ceremony held Thursday, May 29th. Students, staff and volunteers came together to celebrate our beautiful new courtyard. Volunteers were presented with certificates of appreciation for their efforts. A special engraved rock was placed in the fountain
"Dedicated to Retta's endless flow of positive energy…"
This project is a reflection of our amazing school community.
Thank you to everyone!
