Pittsford CSD elementary school students have gone above and “bee-yond” in planting Pollinator Gardens at each of the District’s five elementary schools.
These 3’x12’ raised beds filled with PTSA-funded plants, and soil donated from the Town of Pittsford, will provide ample learning opportunities for the K-5 students as the gardens correlate with the K-5 Life Science Units.
All units look at how to reduce the impact of humans on living and non-living things in our local environment.
This summer, the curriculum will be modified to incorporate these specific lessons at each grade level with the work being done in the gardens. The District will coordinate with PTSA, Girl Scouts and Maintenance to take care of the gardens during July and August.
