It’s time to Spring forward: what’s growing on in the garden?



Another wild perspective from the garden.


K/1 take charge as 7/8th grade help investigate the population of insects in the garden as we start our Animals and their Environments unit. We look for sources of food and shelter for our insect inhabitants. See the ladybug below eating a buffet of aphids.

2nd and 3rd grade investigate weather patterns and climate before we begin our earth science unit. Miss Kathleen’s class wrote expressive weather poems about their favorite weather. Mushrooms bloomed in the recent rain.

5/6th graders dig in and help plant our beautiful new pollinator garden on Excelsior Ave. attracting the largest butterfly we’ve seen this year. Please help protect this garden by watching where you step, picking up trash and picking up after dogs.


7/8th grade test their profound poetic prowess and penmanship while making inspiring signs on a garden workday.
