My Students

Our student population is highly diverse. We have students from all over the globe and from all income brackets. What they all share is a desire to be kind and respectful and a love of learning.

We are a school that incorporates project based learning into our program at all grade levels.

These projects are based primarily around science and social science and our students are very engaged in the creation and sharing of these projects with their parents, peers and greater community.

My Project

This is a farm to table garden project intended to balance and enhance our students' indoor and outdoor science educational experiences. Our completed project will serve all students at Donaldson Way through direct experience including, but not limited to:

Science: Older children can study plants and insects, learn nutrition skills, observe the effects of weather.

Young children can feel the textures of different plant leaves, help water plants, and learn a variety of basic science concepts.

Technology: Weather and soil tools often used in gardens are a great way to discuss technology with older kids. For younger kids, remember that technology is really anything made by humans. Garden tools and other basic items are great conversation starters for how technology is used in gardens.

Engineering: Building and planting a garden is great engineering and design practice.

Mathematics: Gardening is a excellent way to promote a variety of math concepts for preschool and elementary students. Counting, size, shape, proportion, fractions, multiplication, etc. are all math topics that children can learn while gardening. Young children can count how many tomatoes are on a vine, for example, and older kids can problem solve to figure out how much they would have to sell 20 tomatoes for to make a profit.

The project is in its third year of implementation and funds will be used to complete and repair infrastructure, purchase curriculum, support teacher/garden coordinator in efforts to complete garden and implement the program for the school.
