Garden Summer Help Needed
Please help water three Wiley gardens during this summer.  They are...
  • the Savannah @ Northeast Corner of School; Intersection of Calvin Rd & St. Mary's St,
  • the Natural Learning Garden @ Southeast Side of Main Building, and
  • the PTA Circle garden @ Southwest Side of Main Building
For the access to water source, please refer to the instruction below (available on June 15).
The watering schedule will start in the week of June 16-22 and end in the week of August 18-24.  A mid-week date, Wednesday is a suggested sign up date for watering, however, it can be done any sunny day of the week at your convenience. 

Please send parent, Hisayo Tago, a note when watering is done and if you notice any changes in the gardens.

Thank you for helping and keeping the Wiley gardens beautiful in advance.
