SRES Awarded Grant for Butterfly Garden

 Spring Ridge Elementary School has been awarded a grant to purchase plants for a butterfly garden to be installed at SRES in the spring.  Third grade students will use math concepts that apply to the construction, formation and budget of the garden.  As part of a STEM initiative headed by Title I Teacher Specialist Dawn Getzandanner, the project-based approach will also include the application of science concepts to the selection of butterflies and plants appropriate to our climate.  
 All students and members of the SRES community will be invited to assist with the planting in the spring and invited to the grand opening.
This grant was awarded by the FCPS Gifts for Education Fund, which funds student enrichment activities not paid for through the regular budget. FCPS Gifts for Education Fund is supported by gifts from community members.
