EAGLE ROCK — The quad at Eagle Rock Junior/Senior High looked like a giant dust bowl, with much of the grass having given way to dirt in the busy gathering space. But the same spot now sports a bright green lawn as part of a renovation project that was planned by students in partnership with school district maintenance staff. On Tuesday, students and staff celebrated the completion of the project.
The members of the campus’ We Save Club get credit for the new, green quad. They researched what type of sod was most suitable for the environment and amount of foot traffic and also helped install the sod during their free time on weekends, according to a school board official.
The club members will submit their research and work on the quad for a science contest later this year.
