WHAT A PRINCIPAL IS SAYING...

"The majority of our students live in apartments where there is very little 'green space' and they don’t often have the opportunity to see a garden much less be actively involved in actually planting, maintaining, and harvesting from a garden.  The children perceive the garden as almost magical—every day they are finding new and wondrous things to point out in the garden from the odd fuzzy okra to the way the fish blend into their surroundings in the pond to the milkweed that will hopefully attract the Monarch butterflies so we can observe their life cycles…it truly is a little paradise on our campus." - Sabrina Lindsey, Principal
