McComb Elementary Points of Pride

The Botanical Garden on Hooper Street was filled with children from McComb's Summer Learning program.  Students went on a scavenger hunt and found informational signs to help them learn about nature and the beautiful garden.

Take a look at the fun activities our friends at Caro Alternative High School painted on the McComb playground!  Our Tiger Cubs voted on these designs this spring and will enjoy the activities for a long time.  Thank you, CAHS students!

          

The following individuals and businesses have partnered with us in donating materials, plants, seeds, and funds to help create a school garden full of vegetables for the kids and flowers for the bees.  We can't thank them enough!

Mitch Aikens of CPR and Aquatics - lumber for garden beds
Kirk’s Creative Landscaping - sifted topsoil
The Three Sisters’ Garden - plants
The Caro Garden Club - expertise and summer learning experience
Patty McNinch of Tuscola’s Conservation District - expertise and materials
McComb’s PTO - funds used to purchase a compost bin and tools
Szcygiel’s Plant Farm - pallet of compost soil, vegetables, flowers, and seeds
Carter Lumber - 144 ft of treated lumber for additional raised garden beds
Will’s Greenhouse - flowers for the pollinator garden 

We would also like to thank the kitchen staff of McComb Elementary and the Building and Grounds Crew for their incredible support and encouragement while we get our garden growing!

McComb Elementary was proud to participate in “Jump Rope for Heart.” Students learned jump rope skills, how to take care of their heart, and raised money to help kids with special hearts. Our goal was $5,000 and we exceeded the goal and raised $6,762.00!!!!! It warms our hearts that our Tiger Cubs grasped the importance of helping others.
