For their 20% Project, two juniors decided cultivating a pumpkin patch for CFJ students would be a great way to enhance the landscape of the school playground area and cultivate learning and fun for elementary students.
Lexie Keough and Amanda Kiser saw a garden bed that had not been landscaped near the CFJ playground.
In one weekend these two students took this overgrown bed and transformed it into a pumpkin patch.
The hope is that next fall there will be plenty of pumpkins for the students to use for carving, curriculum activities and fall decorating. The students planted enough plants so that if each plant yields one pumpkin, each class in each grade will have a pumpkin.
Thank you, Lexie and Amanda, for your hard work and for giving our students a unique learning opportunity in the fall.
