Amanda’s Garden


Ray School community celebrated the existance of Amanda’s garden.  Twenty years ago Amanda was a young student at Ray.     She was tragically struck and killed by a car on the first day of school.  The garden was built as a memorial to her.  This year Ray school students , staff and community  celebrated with chips and various dips enhanced with fresh herbs from the garden, cookies supplied by Medici and music.  Amanda’s parents Mr and Mrs. Carter were present along with Ace of Spades representatives Rolando Favela and Dr. Margaret Johnson who helped to plan and plant the garden.  Mr. Carter, seen above with his guitar, sang and led the group in song.  Our own science teacher, Ms. Garcia, who worked tirelessly on weekends with students to plant is also seen above addressing the group.  Though it was a chilly, blustery day, the group spirit was not dampened.  It was a great commemoration.
