Mrs. Lyles' Earth Science class was awarded a $2,000 Champions of the Environment Grant.

The Champions of the Environment grant is awarded yearly to schools who submit proposals for supplies that will help students become stewards of the environment. Our grant was written specifically to purchase a greenhouse so we can grow Spartina alterniflora hydroponically. This project is part of DNR's Seeds to Shoreline program. Students germinated Spartina seeds, planted them to grow in a hyrdoponic pool in the greenhouse, completed an oyster bag dissection and will participate in a marsh planting and oyster bagging field experience next week.
