Garden Club Projects
School Garden Project Updates:
• Potato Towers
The Potato Towers are showing signs of life! Leaves are starting to grow out the sides. It may take some time before we harvest, however, it should be worth the wait
• Cabbage Weigh Off
Our little gardeners have thinned out the cabbage bins so the larger plants may flourish. It wouldn’t be surprising if little cabbage patch kids start popping out! Harvest time will be soon. The class who guesses the closest weight of the largest cabbage will win a pizza party along with coleslaw made from the cabbages!
• Worm Farm Worms are on order…. coming soon!
Volunteers: A Big Shout Out to Hugh Samuels for upgrading the garden’s sprinkler system!!!! Thank you to all our volunteers who are watering the gardens! We appreciate our parent and non-parent volunteers who dedicate their time on Green Thumb Thursday’s! This is what makes Gemini’s Garden possible.
Meet Miss Vickie our Star Gemini Garden Volunteer!
Miss Vickie not only shows up every week, but she also brings healthy plant wisdom and joy to all who participate on Green Thumb Thursdays!
***Thank You Miss Vickie***
Mrs. Good would like to give a HUGE SHOUTOUT to Gemini’s PTO and all of our amazing school families! We had a VERY special opportunity for a Florida Sunshine State Book Award Winning Author to visit our school this week! Author Christina Diaz Gomez inspired all of our 6th grade students and over 30 5th grade students in the Media Center! What an incredible opportunity for our JetStars!!! THANK YOU to everyone involved!
There was a big milestone this week as 3rd grader Isla Vorwaller crossed the finish line on 100 miles! This is Isla’s first time reaching 100 miles - what an accomplishment! Isla is committed to running every morning and hopes to hit 200 miles before the end of the school year. Way to go Isla!
Come support Morning Mile by participating in the Pirate Plunder 2 miler on Saturday, April 1. Gemini is in second place currently with two races to go in the series. We need everyone! All participants 14 and under earn points for Team Gemini. Youth registration is $20 with a no shirt/no medal option for only $10. Every race you run will earn credit for 25 laps (straws) and a fun charm for your Morning Mile necklace.
Morning Mile is FREE and all students at Gemini are automatically signed up. We hope you will come and join us 7:15-7:45 on the field just south of Gemini. No need to be on time, just show up anytime before the first bell.
