In January, 2nd Graders at Louisa Boren STEM K-8 made "Postcards from Longfellow Creek." Their classes have been visiting the Creek monthly and learning about watersheds and their community. They used plant samples collected along the creek for inspiration. Later, they wrote and mailed their cards to friends, family and neighbors.
