My Students

Our students come from different economic and cultural backgrounds that reflect the diverse population of Sacramento's midtown area. Our school culture embraces and celebrates diversity, and the importance of involving families and the community in our learning.

One thing we pride ourselves on, is involving our scholars in hands on -high interest clubs and projects where students are able to spend time exploring their interests in creative ways.

My Project

Our school garden was sadly neglected during "distance learning" time last year, so it is time to learn about ag and restore the garden! You will see a long list of items we are requesting, but this is a massive restoration project. (The garden is down to dirt and weeds!) So, we decided to read and learn about ag, and restore it as we go! (Thank you in advance for any support!!!)

Students will read about sustainable farming they revive the garden.

Then, it's time for weeding , amending the soil, planting and finally picking and eating the fruits and veggies!

The items we are requesting, (and will be super grateful for!) in this project will help restock our planting and watering tools, and also provide a transportation and storage system. Students will also tie-dye and silkscreen an original garden design onto t-shirts to commemorate the project!
