MES Preschool Classes Learn About Planting from PPHS Horticulture

Preschool children watch as a high school student helps a Preschool classmate water her tomato plant.On March 30, 2015, Patrick Henry High School’s FFA chapter and Mr. Scypher’s horticulture classes invited Pre-K students and their teachers from Meadowview Elementary School to learn about plants.

During this event, the Pre-K students planted their very own tomato plants with the help of PHHS students and learned how to care for them.  The Pre-K students also learned what local vegetables are used for, what we can make with them, and the main parts of the plant.  Pre-K students had fun getting their hands dirty while potting their plants and learning the importance of soil.
