FARM FRIDAY SEEDS HAVE SPROUTED!
It has only been 4 days since our students (415 of them) each planted a seed with Mr. Wagner!
New Seeds for Farm Friday
Every student at Palmquist participated in our Farm Friday on January 9, 2015. Mr. Wagner gave each class a tour and plant/seed presentation. The seeds planted were in peat pots. After sprouting, they will be planted in our raised beds. Crops are sold to our cafeteria for a healthy fruit and salad bar.
8 Keys of Excellence
This month we will be honoring members of the Palmquist learning community who demonstrate the Key of Excellence for January - Failure Leads to Success!
View failure as feedback that provides you with the information you need to learn, grow, and succeed!
BEST students strive to:
Learn from their mistakes and try again.
