Students and staff at Lane Elementary School celebrated the renovation of the school’s courtyard with a Turtle Release Party on Monday, May 20.
Lane Elementary School staff applied for and received a Lowe's Education Grant for $2,700 to repair the school’s courtyard. Staff also held various fundraisers, including a sock hop, with the theme of “Save the Turtles” in honor of the seven turtles in the courtyard. They were able to raise an additional $1,400 for the courtyard, which was repaired with the help of Phillip Bunn of Mid Georgia Property Enhancements.
During the renovation, the turtles were “adopted” and cared for by classrooms. On Monday, the turtles were released back into the renovated courtyard.
