CAM­BRIDGE — On Thurs­day, June 2, stu­dents at Cam­bridge-South Dorchester High School cel­e­brated their ef­forts to im­prove the court­yard at their school with a rib­bon-cut­ting cer­e­mony.

In con­junc­tion with the Mid-Shore River­keep­ers Conser vancy and with the per­mis­sion of Prin­ci­pal David Bromwell and Dorchester County Pub­lic Schools Su­per­in­ten­dent Henry Wag­ner, stu­dents in Lau­ren Hur­ley’s science classes cleaned up the out­door space.

The project in­cluded power-wash­ing the con­crete sur­faces, sand­ing and

re­paint­ing the pic­nic ta­bles, and re­mov­ing in­va­sive plants to re­place them with na­tive species. Stu­dents also had the idea to hang white­boards on the wall to make the space us­able as an out­door class­room.

“They de­cided to re­move the plants,” said MRC Ed­u­ca­tion and Outreach Co­or­di­na­tor Elle O’Brien. “They de­cided what plants would be planted here. They did all the work, all the paint­ing. I think you went above and be­yond, Ms. Hur­ley’s classes. You did a fan­tas­tic job.”

Wag­ner and County Coun­cil­man Don Sat­ter­field were in at­ten­dance and also praised the stu­dents for their hard work.
