|After weeks of experimenting, a 4th grade scholar found a way |
to get monarch butterflies to climb on his fingers!
The next few posts will offer a glimpse into each of our classes, all the way from Kindergarten to 8th grade. Today we'll begin with our 4th and 5th grade daily elective class.
The scholars in this class chose garden as their elective at the beginning of the first trimester, and we see them every day except Wednesdays. This elective gives students the opportunity to get in-depth knowledge of the skills and science of organic gardening.

By the end of the trimester, scholars will know how to start their own garden from scratch, and have a few neat tricks for preparing the food they've grown. For the first time, we're able to offer the kind of seed-to-table experience that we've been dreaming about for years!
