The Fruits of Our Labor

Last year’s sixth grade class planted a “Seedfolks” garden in the spring.  While reading Seedfolks, by Paul Fleischman, in Mrs. Battisti’s ELA class, students learned about diversity in a community. Seedfolks is full of colorful characters that come together and grow a beautiful garden.  At the same time, students learned about plant diversity in Mrs. Murcray’s science class. Students learned to test soil, plant seedlings, and chart their plant and weather data. A special thank you to Gray’s Greenhouse for donating the marigolds, peppers, cucumber and tomato plants.  Also a huge thank you to Brian Clark and Brett Morrone, maintenance department, for taking care of the garden over the summer.  This year’s harvest, which is still taking place daily, will be sent down to the current seventh graders so they can enjoy their pickings.  Next spring, the current sixth grade class will plant another garden and they will get their fall harvest from next year’s sixth grade.
