“Growing Together”

posted in: Home Page News | 0

Earlier this year, the students in Ms. Schmiegelow’s class, with the support of the United Way, built 3 raised beds at the front on the school and planted a variety of vegetables.  This initiative helped support the science curriculum and promote environmental stewardship, as well as being a fun year-end project.  A number of families of the students in her class volunteered to tend the garden over the summer months.   A special thank you goes out to Clifford and April Brodie, the Martin, Carvalho, Howell-Taylor, Decloux, Vine, Fox and Murphy families for volunteering their time to keep the garden alive during July and August.  Cucumbers, zucchinis, beans, peas, lettuce and radishes were enjoyed.  Lots of tomatoes and the odd pumpkin continue to grow!
