My Students

Our school is located in a remote area of Alaska that is full of rolling hills, rivers and lakes, and an abundance of wildlife from birds, moose, caribou, bears, and more. The families of our students live on the abundance of wildlife for their survival.

My students live in a small, tight-knit Alaskan community with the love for the outdoors.

We experience some of the coldest weather in the state. Families teach their children how to enjoy the outdoors all year long.

My Project

Spring is soon approaching. My students will be needing gardening supplies to be able to learn to plant and raise their own garden. The students will be able to study plant growth over several weeks in the classroom as well as in the school greenhouse.

We need handheld gardening tools, potting soil, seeds, watering cans, and planting baskets.

The students will begin by planting seeds. Once the seeds grow large enough, they will be transplanted into larger baskets or gardens. Our goals to have flower baskets and vegetables growing by the end of the school year, so they can take them home and grow them over the summer for harvest in the fall.
