WESTBOROUGH – Pinwheels caught the sunlight and the wind last week at each of Westborough’s six public schools. 

The pinwheels were part of a Gratitude Garden initiative spearheaded by the Westborough Education Foundation (WEF). They aimed to recognize teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week and thank them for their service to students and families particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The WEF collected donations through the Gratitude Garden project from the community and ultimately set up dozens of “flowers” at each school facility. 

“The Gratitude Garden is just a fun way to show appreciation for our teachers while raising money at the same time to support our grants,” WEF President Maureen Johnson told the Community Advocate last month.
