Malden Memorial Garden
The Malden Memorial Garden was dedicated in June, 1995. It is an outdoor living classroom where students can reflect, engage in class discussions, sketch, or even have an impromptu picnic. The garden has been the setting for the release ceremonies for second graders' butterflies after they have emerged from their crysalises as well as the location of the beds where students have planted bulbs in conjunction with their study of living things and participation in the Journey North Project.
The garden was created as a memorial to a second grade teacher, Mrs. Renay Malden who died in 1993. Funds for this beautiful garden came from the Burning Tree PTA, the Malden Family, the Bender Foundation, and other private contributions. It is lovingly maintained by parents, staff and students.
