Reading garden at Detroit elementary school trashed by vandals
DETROIT – School officials said students helped put together the area, but now all of their hard work is destroyed. It happened at Greenfield Union Elementary-Middle School on West Seven Mile Road, near Woodward Avenue. That’s what Clark, the Dean of Culture at Greenfield Union Elementary-Middle School, saw when he came to work Thursday morning. At first he thought it rained the night before, and that caused the damage, but that wasn’t the case. Especially to a place where not only kids play, but a garden where they took pride in designing and building, that they can enjoy while at school.
