Kudos to All Hallows Academy

All Hallow's snappy sunflower garden is a visual delight. Ashley Mackin

All Hallows Academy, located on Mount Soledad, has a quaint community garden filled with bright, towering sunflowers and other plants. It was started two years ago by then third-grade teacher Mary Skeen, now a vice principal, whose students worked on the garden as part of the science curriculum. Since then, other classes and students, including kindergarteners, have planted various flowers and vegetables like beans and squash. It is maintained by custodian Mr. Jose with assistance by students.
