MHS poinsettia sale to help update greenhouse


Marshalltown High School biology instructor Lynne Diggins is pictured with poinsettias during last year’s sale at MHS. She is again leading a sale of poinsettias to raise money for updating the MHS greenhouse.

Marshalltown High School will be holding a poinsettia sale for the second straight year to help raise funds to update the MHS greenhouse. Poinsettia colors available will be pink, red and jingle bells and are $13 each.

Orders will be taken through December 11 and can be made through MHS science teacher Lynne Diggins by emailing or at the main office at MHS.

The greenhouse once flourished at MHS and is in need of an update, according to Diggins. The goal is to increase its use and provide a better learning environment for MHS students.
