Ribbon Cutting of New Greenhouse for STEAM Program Held
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.
