Activities at Gray Court-Owings Elementary!!
Students, and fellow Montessori teachers have been busy starting seedlings in the classrooms. They have started tomatoes, various squash, peppers, lettuce, dill, and had some failed attempts at broccoli and parsley. Students recently planted some potatoes outside as well. This has allowed the primary classes up to fifth grade classes the opportunity to see vegetable and herb plants start from seed. They have also been responsible for helping water, and transplanting certain plants.
Last week fabric was put down and some soil delivered for the raised beds. Construction of the raised beds will begin after students return from spring break. The hope is to have them complete by April 23rd when we will invite families to come plant, weed and/or transplant in honor of Earth Day.
