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! The garden is down to dirt and weeds, so we decided to read, learn about ag, and restore it as we go!

We will be using these tools to weed, amend, lay mulch, and basically prep the garden beds for planting as we restore them to their former beauty.

The garden is in the center of our school "quad" area, and this will really help brighten up our campus.
