Activities

Don’t underestimate the importance of having fun participating in school activities. Some of the best times and memories students have are the experiences of belonging to a club or participating in an after school activity. Clubs and activities are important to join just for the enjoyment that they will bring to most students, but they also allow the students to more easily make friends because the groups are small and they get to be themselves!

Clubs and activities provide students with many positive experiences that help them to become well-rounded individuals who are ready for college or the workplace. It helps students to become active in their school and to feel a connection the school and to others. It provides a sense of pride and school spirit and it is a positive influence on our youth today.

There is something for everyone! Get involved!

Four pictures of students digging and planting in the garden.After raising $940 with this year’s herb sale, fourth graders have been busy planting flowers to beautify our school and are learning all about healthy eating and where our food comes from by planting vegetable gardens.

We are growing a wide variety of healthy veggies including lettuce, kale, spring onions, eggplant, zucchini, squash, tomatoes and even watermelon! We have two 12 X 16 outdoor gardens where the plants are growing in regular soil, as well as 3 areoponic tower gardens in the courtyard. In the areoponic gardens nutrients are added to the water and circulated throughout the system using a pump-no soil is needed.

These units are currently being tested by NASA to grow fresh veggies for astronauts on future space missions. We are using our measuring skills and keeping track of plant growth in both gardens to see which method produces the best crops. Stay tuned for weekly updates.

In addition to purchasing plants and tools for our gardens, this year we are using herb money to purchase a grill for our school, and a new tool shed for our indoor courtyard. Thanks to everyone who or
