Students plant memorial butterfly garden

The friends and classmates of Devin Hawkins, a student at Carver Middle School who was tragically lost this spring, planted a memorial butterfly garden in his memory on June 11.  This followed the reading of Priscilla Cumming’s novel, “Red Kayak,” in which survivors plant butterfly gardens as a memorial tribute to deceased children.  Devin’s classmates wrote private messages and placed them in a memorial capsule that was planted in the garden.

During the 6th grade awards assembly, a slideshow presenting the memorial tribute was shown to students, parents, and faculty members.  It was a truly meaningful tribute to a student who will be greatly missed.

Nancy Fontana, an English teacher at Carver coordinated the activity.
