Order your spring plants, support William Byrne

It's time again for the William Byrne PTO Plan Sale. There are three great ways to support William Byrne and make your garden look great: pre-order plants or gift cards, use our special coupon at Pahl's, or purchase plants to donate to our STEM Garden.

Orders are due on April 22 and there will be a one-day pickup on May 8 between 5:30 and 8 p.m. Any plants not picked up by 8 p.m. will be donated. Download the order form.

If you don't see what you want on the order form, you can use our special invitation at Pahl's Market between May 11 and June 1, and Byrne will receive 10 percent of your total purchase.

STEM Garden Donations

Last summer volunteers at William Byrne cleared out the front garden to create a STEM Garden. The concept is to have an interactive garden where students will apply concepts of STEM. The goal is to have each grade level use the garden in an area of STEM.

We are looking for donations for the 1st grade project of creating an area for a butterfly garden. 1st graders study butterflies in the spring by having caterpillars in the classroom and watch them as they make their chrysalis and emerge as butterflies. We would like to create a butterfly habitat for when the butterflies are released. You may donate any amount to this project. All proceeds will go toward purchasing plants that attract and benefit butterflies.

To donate, please write in the amount on the plant sale order form and include that amount in your overall plant purchase total.
