Bullard Elementary Students, Teachers Watch Their Red Ribbon Week Garden Grow

Spring has sprung and so have the beautiful red tulips planted by Bullard Elementary School in for the national PTA’s Red Ribbon Week. In October 2012, Bullard students, teachers and administrators planted 1,000 red tulips on the school grounds, symbolizing their commitment to “Say No to Drugs.” Each student had an opportunity to dig a hole in the prepared soil and plant their bulb as they reflected on their pledge. Months went by and the long anticipated spring has brought new life to the campus.

“My students pass the tulips every day,” said Kindergarten teacher Bonnie Adams. “They have been so excited to see their flowers bloom and are so proud.”

Bullard Elementary, located on Old Stilesboro Rd., marks its 10th year anniversary this year.
