Pendleton Elementary School Memory Garden
Memory Garden at Pendleton Elementary School in Pendleton SC
The Pendleton Elementary School Memory Garden continues to grow due to the hard work of Parent and School Volunteers and the students at Pendleton Elementary.In 2006, The Pendleton Elementary School's School Improvement Council (SIC) wanted a project that would honor the memory of faculty and students such as Mrs. Baker and Mrs. Peebles. The Memory Garden was chosen as a project that would do this as well as be used for Educational Purposes and enhance the school atmosphere.

Are you joining this fun Garden Club? - Sue and Kris have lots of great stuff in store for the Secret Garden
Starting the school garden club was one of the goals of the original group that organized the school garden so it is wonderful to see that it actually happened. I know the children must be enjoying it and learning a lot that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.

I think it would be a good idea for the PES Garden Club to make or sell Personalized Stones for the garden. What do you think?
Memorial Garden Stones - Would you like to remember a loved one with a Garden Stone?
Just click the stone to purchase or to browse around Amazon.comI wonder if this would be something that could actually be made on site at the school by the art classes?
I am excited about the vision and future of PES's Memory Garden. We look forward to partnering with the parents, community, and high school to ensure that this Garden remain a productive place where kids can be exposed to South Carolina Standards and nature at its finest. The Garden is an instrumental piece of our Pendleton Community and I would urge you to call and set up a time to come and visit it our school.— Pendleton Elementary School Principal, Adam D. Dymond
The Original Design for The Pendleton Elementary School Memory Garden - Design by Corey Watson and Gerald VanderMey
The original design has been altered over the years to incorporate ideas from Faculty and Students.The Children's Committee, along with the Plan/Design Committee (Gerald VanderMey, Chair), have worked with Brenda VanderMey of Clemson University's Landscapes for Learning on ideas for the design. Corey Watson, a parent volunteer and Landscape Designer took these ideas and developed the design. In recent years, Sue Watts has worked with students and faculty and the Memory Garden continues to move in a forward direction.The Pendleton Elementary School Memory Garden is still very much a "work in progress" but has come a long way from it's beginnings.

Groundbreaking Ceremony for The Pendleton Elementary School Memory Garden - Pendleton Elementary School in Pendleton SC - October 7, 2006
Pendleton Elementary School held a Groundbreaking Ceremony for it's Memory Garden on Saturday morning October 7, 2006. The garden is being developed to honor the memory of PES teachers, Brenda Baker and Deborah Peebles. An invocation by District 4 Superintendent, Dr. Gary Burgess, was followed by a welcome by PES principal, Kim Nicholson. After flag presentations by Boy Scout Troop 94 and music by the PES Chorus, Dr. Brenda VanderMey, of Clemson University presented an outline of the Landscapes for Learning criteria and explained how the garden would serve as an outdoor laboratory for students as well an ongoing project to foster community participation. Corey Watson and Gerald VanderMey displayed the design for the garden and Brenda VanderMey gave Principal Nicholson a book of original art by PES Students which illustrated their concepts for the Memory Garden. The Garden will be developed with the active participation of Clemson University and local volunteers, but students will be the primary focus in both design and maintenance.Faculty members shared personal recollections of Ms. Baker and Ms. Peebles, illustrating their exemplary creativity and devotion to both students and fellow teachers."They truly understood that students are the flowers and teachers are the gardeners", said Tracie Sweet, a first grade teacher at Pendleton Elementary.The family of Deborah Peebles broke ground on the project followed by closing recognitions and remarks by Nancy Hellams.The ceremony closed with a touching vocal rendition of "Remember Me" by faculty member, Bonita Young, as bubbles rose into the air of a beautiful early fall morning. This was a morning to REMEMBER !
