Garden season begins today! Please bring your coat to every class with Mrs. Merdzinski because we will be going outside to look for signs of spring this week! We will be blogging about it, reading garden books in the library and making art in the art room! What did you see outside this week
We are excited to welcome many new Compost Kids to our team. Brenton, Carson, Josh, Aiden, Cameron, and Breanna all new members excited to work. Good thing, because we have lots of chores to do. Now we pick up all the classrooms compost and clean the buckets. We will also be turning the pile more often now that it is warming up! Hooray
We are heading outside everyday for Compost Kids and it is great to feel the air getting warmer. Today we put in a big bag of sawdust and a big box of bark. We know that these materials are the carbon that we need for our compost! Thank You for donating Mr. Lovelace and Mrs. Smith.
After tracking the compost in our tumbler for over a month, we are disappointed in the progress we are making. The temperature inside the tumbler is still 80 degrees. It is very wet and heavy from the water, food scraps and shredded cardboard we have been adding. Are there any compost experts out there? We would like your help. Please comment below if you can help. We will be checking our blog every morning. Thank You for your help. The Compost Kids
