Crabapple Lane Elementary is working together to beautify their green space.
The school’s Clean Earth Club has been teaming up with the PTO to revamp the courtyard with a goal to create an engaging and immersive learning experience for all students. To further their plan, they gifted the Pre-K class with a raised bed, soil, and strawberry plants.
In the past, Pre-K teacher Ashley Fannin created a small garden for her students to learn about plants. Remembering those activities, the PTO and Clean Earth Club reached out with the donation. The Pre-K students helped plant the strawberries, and they will continue to care for their garden for the remainder of the school year.
Fannin looks at the garden as a win-win for both her students and the school as a whole.
“We hope that the students retain an understanding of the parts of a plant, the needs of a plant, and that they realize how much work goes into caring for gardens and harvesting food.”
