Schroeder’s senior courtyard has new, calming water feature

28 Apr

A new water feature just installed in the Webster Schroeder senior courtyard should go a long way to help our students relax and unwind a bit as this difficult school year comes to a close.

The new feature is the beautiful result of a partnership between Webster Schroeder Principal Paul Benz and the Schroeder PTSA. They’ve been working together since September 2019 to beautify and enhance the often-used courtyard.

Schroeder PTSA chair Stacie Peters wrote,

We both wanted a calming water feature for the students to enjoy while outside in the courtyard. We worked with Gary Smith, owner of Nature’s Accents, and we decided a bubbling rock feature would be perfect for this space. Gary was wonderful to work with and students/staff are so happy with the results.

PTSA representatives, Smith, Principal Benz, and several student and parent volunteers worked together one day over Spring Break to create the feature, prepping the area for bubbling rock, laying stone around a trio of pottery art pieces and trees, and creating a separate area for teachers to use as an outdoor classoom.

“A huge thanks go to our volunteers Andy P., Sawyer P., Ryan P., Robin M., Benjamin M., Jack S., Brendan M.,
Sean S., Zach P., Abby N., Jason L., Sophie W., Stephen W., and Jake M.,” Peters wroite. Plus, “we can’t thank (Gary Smith) enough for all his patience, time, and support in helping us bring this water feature to Schroeder.”

Seniors are already enjoying the newly beautified courtyard, soaking up the sun and relaxing by the water feature, reveling in the new, peaceful corner of their high school world.
