Physical Education (General) / Tuesday 9:00-9:45am

Staying active is a lifelong pursuit, and finding hobbies that can provide regular activity is one of the keys to lifelong health and wellness.

Gardening / Tuesday 9:45-11:15am

Students will plan, plant, tend, and harvest edible and non-edible plants for each growing season.  Between gardening sessions, students will confront the issues facing our environment today, including threats of pesticides, pollution, habitat loss and other human impacts on the natural world around us. Students will learn what plants and animals need to survive, the importance of balanced ecosystems, and steps we can take to support the interconnected web of life around us and become better stewards of the Earth.
