Sylvan Park Students’ Gift from 1958
Kindergarten is studying life in the past, so Ms. Calverly has been digging through some Sylvan Park history in the library and found these gems from 1958. These are some students planting what later became the big magnolia tree out front. What a big difference a small act of service has made for our community!
