May 2016 edition
Spring Beautification Day
Character Trait of the Month: Self-Discipline
In collaboration with Five & Two Farms, the students at Courtney have created a unique garden on the old tennis court. Volunteers guided the students in planting herbs, greens, trellising beans, and other crops last month. The students will monitor the plant growth and conditions as part of the science curriculum, with the added bonus of learning how to grow food. Dr. Cockrell sees the garden as "a way to authentically supplement core curriculum." The garden also provides a connection between the school and the Courtney community.
We invite the community to visit our garden! Please check in with the office before heading down to the garden, so that we can ensure our students' safety.
Exam dates for 2016 are:
- May 20: grade 5; Science
