05/25/2017: Hollis Hand Raised Garden Funded Through Donor's Choose HHES - Planting Food in Gardens

Fourth grade students at Hollis Hand Elementary are looking forward to picking food from their own garden before the last day of school. Elena Wire, a 4th grade science teacher at Hollis Hand with over 20 years of education experience at the school, wanted to teach her students where fruits and vegetables really come from.

Wire said, “When we study food chains in our science class, the discussion always turns to where do human consumers get their food. My students are always quick to respond ‘from the grocery store!’ or ‘from the refrigerator!’ I wanted them to discover where food comes from through a hands on approach, so that is where the idea of a raised garden came from.”

Last week the Troup County School System (TCSS) hosted their annual Retirement Reception at Rosemont Baptist Church. With over 150 friends, family and co-workers in attendance, the church donated the facility, provided the food and set up the venue with decorations.

Chairman of the Board of Education, Mr. Ted Alford said, “You know, rock stars never really retire. Their music lives on through radio play, concerts, other rock stars, and their music. They leave a legacy, which many of you have done – leaving a legacy through the student’s lives you have touched.”
