JRA: Reading Garden & Critter Cottage
Jeannette McKinney Reading Garden
This garden is shaded by huge trees and has benches, swings, large chairs, and a hammock for students to enjoy. The reading garden is a contribute to Mrs. Jeannette who taught at JRA for 30 years and passed away Jan. 6th, 2011. The reading garden has birdhouses made by the students, a large rock fountain, a wooden stage and many, many beautiful plants. Every week, our nursery, pre-school, Pre-K and Kindergarten students have the opportunity to be read to by elementary, intermediate, and middle school students. Special bonds are formed between “Reading Buddies” and all students look forward to this activity very much.
