Garden Program:

     The garden program is off to a wonderful start this year. Emily Bishton from the Magnuson Nature Program is our dedicated Garden Teacher for the entire year! We’re so lucky to have her and the children are particularly fond of her knowledge and enthusiasm.  We’ve completed lessons with K-3 on seed; decomposition and the soil food web; and this week we are doing plant parts and stems.  We will be gardening and learning through the fall and taking a brief break over winter. We believe our work in the garden is a wonderful way to reinforce the science concepts and lessons that the kids learn about in the classroom. Plus, growing food is fun! We hope you hear from your kids about the program. New to the program this year is the Pre-K program. They too are able to take advantage of our garden curriculum and time with Emily as a result of additional support from the PTA.  It’s wonderful to see all are littlest gardeners out there every day.  Still needed in the garden program are volunteers for our Monday garden classes from ~1:30-3:30pm and a volunteer to coordinate Garden Recess on Fridays from ~10:30a.m.-11am. Please contact our Garden Chair Einas Farag at ardenspepta@gmail.com
