As spring finally arrived, kindergarten teachers at Greendale Elementary School celebrated with a unit on plants. Each class read a variety of books about plants and gardening to gain background knowledge before they planted seeds. Mrs. Jeffers’ students read The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle and planted marigold seeds; Mrs. Kittrell’s class read Zinnia’s Flower Garden by Monica Wellington and planted zinnias and sunflowers; and Mrs. Sutherland’s class read Jack and the Beanstalk and planted lima beans. These newly-planted seeds were placed under grow lights or in windows so that the students could water them as needed and observe how they changed as they grew. After their marigold plants matured, Mrs. Jeffers’ students took them home for special Mother’s Day gifts. Mrs. Kittrell’s and Mrs. Sutherland’s classes are still observing the growth of their sunflowers, zinnias, and lima beans and looking forward to brightly-colored flowers and yummy beans!

Patrick Henry High School CTE teacher Ms. Sarah Helton shared her knowledge and skills of using the up and coming 3-D printer with a group of E. B. Stanley Middle School seventh graders. Throughout the year, students from Mrs. Ramseyer’s language arts classes read and discussed articles regarding the use of 3-D printers and how people benefited from them and will benefit from them in the future. During the presentation, Ms. Helton and Patrick Henry High School Principal Dr. Keith Perrigan shared some of the items that students from PHHS created with their 3-D printer. Additionally, they gave some insight to career opportunities regarding this new technology. A highlight of the presentation was when students watched the printer make replicas of items from the currently popular Mindcraft game. Ms. Helton’s willingness to share her knowledge of technology supports the motto from the Patrick Henry's faculty page: "We are preparing students for careers that don't yet exist, using technologies that haven't been invented, in order to solve problems that we don't even know exist."
