Here Comes Summer!

Time, work and a lot of tender loving care have transformed the back yard of the Assumption School into a garden spot.  Two weeks ago, the weather was nice enough to start pulling weeds and preparing the beds for summer plantings. Many thanks to our dedicated teacher Mrs. Rizkallah for organizing the Garden Club.  There are hundreds of lessons to be learned in the garden. The amazing thing is that it feels less like school work and more like fun. There are so many opportunities for success in a garden which is something that not all kids achieve so readily in a classroom.  Our philosophy is that a little success feeds greater success. A child who learns something new and interesting in the garden will likely bring that enthusiasm to other areas of his life.
