Sixth grade technology students at Long Beach Middle School are continuing the courtyard beautification project that originally began in 2015. Each fall, the students plant approximately 300 flowering bulbs that come into full bloom when spring weather arrives. Under the guidance of teacher Keith Harvey, students mapped out designs with graphs and used X, Y coordinates to plant their precise creations. The goal is to have 2022 bulbs planted in the courtyard for spring of 2022, which is the year that the first group of this initiative’s participants will be graduating high school.
