Garden Party

Because of some very dedicated and wonderful parent volunteers all the fifth grade classes enjoyed a gardening day today. Students gathered the harvest of the planting Mr. Schwindt and his class did at the beginning of summer. Students performed some basic garden maintenance, adding soil, weeding and watering. We also planted a winter vegetable garden and planted seeds for a beautiful butterfly garden which will bloom in spring.
