Dedication of Tricia’s Nook

On Friday, May 31, 2019 many students, families, and teachers gathered around the Garden Classroom for a Garden Party and special dedication to honor Dr. Tricia Clifford. During her eight years as Burbank principal, Dr. Clifford did so much for the school and played a key role in supporting the building and use of our school gardens.

PTA Co-President Seetha Burtner announced the naming of a new bench and arbor feature in the garden as “Dr. Tricia Clifford’s Nook” (affectionately known as “Tricia’s Nook”) to honor her nurturing of Burbank’s gardens and children. Dr. Clifford was invited to place an inscribed rock in the garden nook and unveil the new bench.

“Tricia’s Nook” is a delightful spot to sit and enjoy views of the garden – take a moment to try it!
