Kindness Rocks

Many of you have noticed colorful rocks with kind sayings on them, popping up around Flaherty. During our Kindness month the students painted rocks to spread out around the school. We waited until the weather was nice to put them out. If someone sees a rock that makes them smile and brightens their day, they can take it. 

If anyone wants to paint more at home over the summer, feel free to spread them around the school, just not on the grass so we can mow the lawn.

Flaherty Gives Back

In February the whole school was encouraged to keep kindness calendars. We made calendars because we wanted to show what we did as acts of kindness. This was a great way to show kindness in and out of school.

March and April were our “animal months”. As a school we collected and donated loads of supplies for the animals at The Quincy Animal Shelter and The New England Wildlife Center.

School Garden

The Flaherty Elementary School Garden is part of the Mary P. Struzziero Outdoor Learning Center, named after the former school Principal, which also houses an outdoor classroom.

Parent volunteers are essential to the maintenance, weeding, and watering of the garden throughout the year. Since 2013 the garden has been a source of excitement and hands-on education that is invaluable to the Flaherty students' school experience. 

This year, the school partnered with Holly Hill Farm in Cohasset to bring educators to the garden during the growing season to help with the planting and harvesting.
