Last Fall, the 8th graders built six garden beds to create a "giving garden" to support the efforts of La Soupe. Unfortunately, the students are not able to come to campus to work in the garden due to Covid-19. Over the weekend, a few of the 8th grade teachers harvested our first produce from the garden and donated five bags of lettuce and spinach to La Soupe. We also planted many seedlings that the students had already begun inside before Spring break. If the weather conditions cooperate, we hope to have about 15x this amount of produce to donate in about a month. - Lucia Jaccaci.
We will create learning opportunities that go beyond the traditional classroom practices and empower students to demonstrate critical, creative, and entrepreneurial thinking and to apply their knowledge in meaningful ways.
