In mid-March, Ham/Hopson & Associates, a local landscape design and construction company, donated red twig dogwoods, crepe myrtles, rhododendrons, and dwarf Austrian black pines to Franklin School. Most of the plants have been planted along the south end of the gym and by the cafeteria/Mr. Shumski’s room.  In addition to the new plantings, other established plants have also been relocated to improve our school’s landscaping. More work will be completed over the next few weeks to take advantage of soft ground and spring rain.
