     Garden at Highland Lakes
    Gardening is an engaging way for our students to learn content area standards in a meaningful and memorable way. Students have planted and are now observing their seedlings as they grow. Soon we will be able to enjoy our radishes, carrots, basil, cilantro, chives, tomatoes, cucumbers, and sugar snap peas. Check out our outdoor classroom!
