Happy Earth Day

The students came to class saying, " We're doing Earth Day EVERY day in this class." What a wonderful feeling to hear those words from this generation! 

We enjoyed the beautifully sunny and very windy day today on our garden site.  The Castelli family donated some root balls from their Butterfly Bushes so we got to work transplanting them into their temporary home and giving them plenty of TLC.  We also used recycled plastic bottles to create containers for our seedlings that we'll thin out tomorrow. We'd like to thank the following people for their generous donations.  We will not be able to do this project without the kindness of our parents and the community.

Home Depot gift card – Christian Flynn-Hill
