First graders Gracelyn Gorman, Carter Stein, and Bree Krpec give Superintendent Dr. Connor a tour of their class garden. These students are part of Mrs. Ruether's class. They planted seeds, charted the growth of the seedlings, watered, weeded, and now harvested vegetables. They learned about plant needs, plant defenses and life cycles. Their garden includes cucumbers, green peas, cherry tomatoes, squash, radishes, green peppers, green beans, and carrots.
