I brought up the idea from P. Allen Smith of having the students plant daffodils, and then selling bouquets of them in the spring. 75% of the time the atrium will be covered in snow, so I thought spring blooming bulbs would be easy and be beautiful at the same time. We also talked about having the art classes create art for the atrium, whether it be stepping stones, sculptures, or murals. We also had the idea of seeing if the tech ed classes at the high school could build us lots of seating for the atrium.
We agreed that we needed to find out what the other teachers would like to see happen with the atrium. Since in order for the project to be a success we needed vested interest. We are going to survey staff, and agreed to meet again in November to further discuss the project.
