Eliot School Students Help Old North Church’s Memorial Garden

For years, 8th graders from the Eliot K-8 Innovation School have held their graduation ceremony at  the Old North. In gratitude, Assistant Principal Lydia Torres asked if the students could help the church in any way.

Bruce Brooksbank has been working all spring to rejuvenate the Old North Memorial Garden which literally took a hit this winter from snow falling off the church roof. He suggested having the students count the dog tags to see if the count was correct.

Teachers spent time over the past weeks helping the students understand the memorial, how it was developed and what it represents.

Their graduation ceremony will be held on June 19.
