The traditional bugle sound at our school begins the day! The homeroom bell rings and students and faculty stand at attention while the bugles play "The Morning Call." This is probably the most unique tradition we have at the Home of the Bulldog. Throughout these years many excellent students have passed through our doors, experiencing the highest quality instruction, curriculum, and administration. Excellence in education is the BEST of our school's traditions. We are a faculty and administration dedicated to the education of children. We are proud of our school and its traditions; we want you to share this pride with us.
My students are highly motivated, fun, and ready to learn how things grow.
Our school is an urban public school. Our students come from a urban area, with a variety of different economic backgrounds and experiences.
They are our future generation. This will be our first year having an edible, organic garden at the school. Being able to grow and produce their own food, for themselves, their families and those in need will be a lifelong skill that my students will use and recall.
Weekly my students will be maintaining the edible gardens inside and outside our school.
This grant opportunity will provide funding for the startup of a sustainable garden that our students can be charged with.
The organic compost and seedlings will will allow our students to give back to the community and coordinate with a local soup kitchen to provide food to those in need. Students will also be encouraged to eat the fresh produce and start a home garden with the skills they have learned at school. The AquaSprout Gardens, which will be housed inside the classroom will show students directly interdependence, a major concept in 7th grade science.
The garden will teach our students state standards including but not limited to genetics, heredity, human impact of the earth, the rock cycle, the important part plants play in food chains and webs, and stress ecological principles.
