Mr. Fralick's Garden

Mr. Fralick's garden has created an outdoor area for kids to enjoy their day, practice social distancing, and learn more about the  environment. 

Sugar Creek Elementary’s art teacher Clark Fralick and his daughter have tended to the elementary school’s well-known garden outside. During COVID-19, the outdoor garden has been put to good use as an alternate learning environment for students.. 


Students are learning how our environment works in new and engaging ways. Students help the Fralicks grow organic produce to donate to local food banks. Organic bok choy, pearl radishes, white stemmed kale, heritage lettuce, and spinach are all grown in the garden. We appreciate the Fralick’s contribution to hands-on learning in a way that gives back to the community.

Congratulations to Sugar Creek Elementary sixth-grader Vivian Hart on being named a finalist for the Letters About Literature finalist!

Letters About Literature is a reading and writing contest for students in grades 4-12. Students are asked to read a book, poem or speech and write to the author (living or dead) about how the book affected them personally. Letters are judged on state and national levels.

Tens of thousands of students from across the country enter Letters About Literature each year. At the state level, over 1500 students enter the contest this year. 109 of those, including Vivian, were selected as finalists. 

All finalists are invited to participate in a workshop featuring several Indiana authors, and then an awards ceremony takes place.  This years workshop and ceremony will be held on Saturday, April 27th at the Indiana State Library in downtown Indianapolis.

Vivian enjoys reading, playing soccer, and spending time with her friends. Vivian, her family, and her teacher, Mr. Farmer, all plan to attend the awards ceremony on April 27th.
