Ribbon Cutting of New Greenhouse for STEAM Program Held

Staff and students help cut the ribbon on Daniell Middle’s new greenhouse.

Just before school let out for the summer, students and staff at Daniell Middle cut the ribbon on the school’s new greenhouse.

Leigh Anna Engkaninan, Daniell Middle STEM lead teacher, applied for and was awarded a $3,600 grant to build the greenhouse. The greenhouse, which took about six hours to construct, can expand by about eight additional feet to accommodate the school’s growing garden.

The school will donate the produce harvested from the greenhouse to a local women’s shelter, and sixth grade students in the research and reading classes will help tend the garden during the school year.
