  • Mulch has many benefits

    It helps to control weeds, prevent extreme soil temperature fluctuation, decrease water evaporation, and improve drainage.  Mulch also reduces mower and string trimmer damage on shrubs and trees by suppressing vegetation near their trunks.  As it decomposes, mulch produces organic materials to improve soil and otherwise benefit plants.

    Mulching is one of the best things we can do for our plants, but if done incorrectly, it can be one of the worst things we can do to them.

    Thanks to a parking lot expansion behind the Board of Education building, Kathryn Winn parents are not waiting as long to pick up their children after school. On Monday, parents began using two new pickup paths so that Ninth Street is no longer blocked by stopped vehicles and so that students have more safe crossing areas.

    “This is a big change in our afternoon pickup routine,” said Principal Donna Monroe. “However, it’s in the best interest of students, parents and the community.”
