The PTA, students, staff, and community members of Shughart Elementary created a rock garden in honor of military children everywhere.  The quote that inspired the garden is, “Every rock thrown my way I use as a stepping stone to get to where I want to be.”  The PTA members created a space for the rock garden in Shughart’s Outdoor Learning Environment (OLE).  Each student and staff member painted a rock using their own personal style. Following a special ceremony, each person placed their rock in the rock garden.  The PTA plans to add to the rock garden each year during April, the month of the military child.  Dr. Carr, school principal, believes that the rock garden will serve as a reminder that military kids are treasured and appreciated.
