Challenger student Jack B. earned the rank of Eagle Scout. The Court of Honor Ceremony was held recently at Monarch in the new Butterfly building.

So what exactly did Jack do for his Eagle Scout Project? “I researched Labyrinths and found out they are built for reflection and therapeutic healing so I figured that would be an awesome project.

I realized that it fit in perfectly with Monarch’s philosophy so I asked if I could construct it right here at school. Dr. Hall had been wanting one here at school for some time, so it all fit perfectly.” Jack said.

“I created a Labyrinth in front of The Monarch School’s Chrysalis building. I sketched out how it would look. I removed the old grass and weeds. Based on my design, I laid out the path with anti-weed blocking fabric. I laid out the St. Augustine and planted the grass. I filled the path with decomposed granite. Then, I watered and kept the grass groomed neatly,” he added.

Look for the next newsletter to highlight another Challenger, Evan J., and his Eagle Scout project!
