Local students create handmade floral art installation
For the last several weeks, students at H-B Woodlawn have been hard at work creating a quilted flower installation to hang in their hallway as we welcomed spring into our neighborhood!
Over 75 middle school students made their own crochet pieces, working together to determine how to assemble them all into one piece. They then figured out how to display the large collection in the lobby of their building. You can see the full installation through the glass lobby of The Heights Building along 1601 Wilson Blvd.
The installation is part of our larger Big Blooms flower installations across the neighborhood! Find out more about this placemaking initiative and how you can win a $50 Rosslyn restaurant gift card by sharing these beautiful pieces with hashtag #RosslynRefresh.
Additionally, May 1-7 was Teacher Appreciation Week, so we stopped by the school to help celebrate local teachers by handing out fresh florals from our flower cart to kick off their school day. Thank you to our teachers and students for all they do to make our neighborhood great!
About H-B Woodlawn
The H-B Woodlawn Program is designed to provide its students with more control over their education. They value self-motivation and self-discipline in its students, characteristics that are vital for success at the school. The central focus of the system is student choice.
Students make choices in three general areas, use of time and personal behavior, educational goals, and school governance. They work hard to instill these habits in their students, incrementally increasing freedom and expectations of responsibility through the grades.
