Valley View Elementary students wrapped up the year with a beautification project made possible by donations of supplies by Rockford Ace Hardware. According to organizer Katy Nelson, fifth-graders there worked hard putting in eight bags of cedar mulch, eight bags of peat moss, six bags of topsoil, one crab apple tree, two lilac bushes, two spirea bushes, 10 perennials, and two flats of snapdragons. The school also purchased flats of annuals for the project. Visitors to the school will see a plaque thanking Rockford Ace Hardware from the class of 2016.
