Canyon Springs opens ‘Kinder “garden”’
Staff ~ 4/28/2015
ANTHEM – The kindergartners of Canyon Springs School can now experience gardening right at their school.
Canyon Springs Kindergarten teacher Jaime Hansen was awarded $450 from the Deer Valley Education Foundation for an Impact grant funding the Kinder ‘garden’. The garden was created using the funds to support the Kindergarten Program and the STEM program, which promotes Science, Engineering, Math and Technology in the classroom.
The ribbon cutting ceremony for the new garden was conducted on April 22 in celebration of Earth Day. Principal Tricia Graham was there for the ribbon cutting and ceremony, in which students sang songs, watered and tended their newly planted garden and conducted a campus clean-up. The garden is a gift that will keep giving for all students at Canyon Springs and generations to come.
