Do you know a spe­cial teacher who demon­strates a con­ta­gious enthu­si­asm for teach­ing and learn­ing and who reg­u­lar­ly inspires all stu­dents to take on new chal­lenges and to rec­og­nize their full poten­tial?

Mitchell Garden Club Starts Soon

This spring we will focus on prep­ping the Mitchell Com­mu­ni­ty Gar­den for plant­i­ng.  We will learn about the veg­eta­bles and flow­ers we plant and will main­tain the gar­den while learn­ing about the pos­i­tive effects of health and nutri­tion through hor­ti­cul­ture.  Week­ly activ­i­ties will be cen­tered around kines­thet­ic and visu­al learn­ing, with an empha­sis on coop­er­a­tion.  Stu­dents will lead an Earth Day cel­e­bra­tion in April, and will reach out to neigh­bor­ing schools for par­tic­i­pa­tion.  Music, PE and Art teach­ers are encour­aged to pro­vide activ­i­ties for stu­dents to engage in.  Par­ent Vol­un­teers are also encour­aged to lend a hand any time.

In case of inclement weath­er, please check in with the main office for our sec­ondary loca­tion.
