Specially designed flowerbeds bring joy to Tappan Hill students

Specially designed flowerbeds are creating joy and excitement for students who attend SWBOCES Center for Special Services programs at Tappan Hill School in Tarrytown.

The flowerbeds, which were custom-built by students in Kurt Boysen‘s Construction and Plumbing class on our Career Services campus in Valhalla, were designed to be wheelchair-accessible.

Assistant Principal Francesca Fernandez said she is very thankful for the partnership.

“This wonderful collaboration has brought joy to our school,” she said. “Our students are now able to participate in gardening, and they get so excited when we come outside to see how the plants and flowers are growing.”   

The flowerbeds were delivered to the school in late May, and excited students and staff wasted no time to fill the gardens with a variety of plants, flowers, and herbs, which are now thriving in the early summer sun.
