Last year the Significant Special Needs (SSN) group at Castle View applied for a grant to construct a community garden on campus for their students to maintain. They were not awarded the grant.
Enter Mosaic and Michael Schneider…
Fast-forward six months and several Mosaic students are designing the CV Unity Garden. They are planning and building in collaboration with our SSN students … and they are committed, 100%.
Today Michael was exceptionally bold. 🙂 He took our Unity Garden students on a field trip (signed forms and all) to the Community Garden at Castle Rock Adventist Hospital, which is literally down the street from CV.
Their trip didn’t go unnoticed:
I salute you, Mr. Schneider. I only wish we could have some sort of standing field trip form for Mosaic students and teachers. I can’t wait to take students a few miles further to Castlewood Canyon to explore. (I have an annual parking pass if that helps.)
We’re breaking down barriers … one idea, one question, one project at a time.
Like Commander Armstrong said, “One small step…”
And there’s also this gem, which is what happens when a teacher asks students what they’re up to outside of school. Then, upon hearing their answers, says, “Teach me.”
