Students in grades K-5 spent the day learning outdoors with the Camp Minikani staff. Students enjoyed learning about animal adaptations with guest, David Stokes, and participating in a host of engaging outdoor experiences including rowboating, campfire songs, and watershed experiences, just to name a few.
Thanks to a Team Nutrition grant from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, Rockfield was able to implement a school garden this spring.Two classrooms (Mrs. Schowalter's third grade and Ms. Ritger's first grade) buddied up and worked together to propagate seeds indoors, plan the three raised beds, prepare the site, and finally plant the seedlings in June. Excitement in the classrooms was high as learners taste tested vegetables to help decide what to plant, observed the growth of seedlings, planned the beds, spread mulch, dug into the soil, and measured the beds using square foot parameters. Two local master gardeners are partnering with this project as well. Many thanks to Al Radawitz for building the beds. Interested families are caring for the vegetables and flowers over the summer months. This is a Rockfield community garden so feel free to harvest anything ready for the taking! Basil, peppers, and tomatoes, are a few items planted. The garden is in the courtyard area behind the primary wing.
