This year, 6-8 graders have focused on a Service as Action learning opportunity. Teachers worked to weave a service opportunity for students within their IB units of study. For our 6th grade class, this meant creating a garden of native Michigan plants which attract butterflies. With the help of Michelle Golembieski, Bowers Farm guide, and the EHMS Green Team, students had an opportunity to transfer the plants to our front gardens, where they can be watered and cared for during the summer months. Students will expand to a greenhouse learning space next year.
