Special Education Teacher Tresa Davis has been awarded a $1,000 grant from Cox Charities. Her program is called Lion Pride Special Garden and she will teach students skills to maintain a garden. GMS students in resource and special education classes will learn how to plant, grow, and harvest a variety of vegetables and fruits. Students will use the raised beds in the courtyard of the middle school. 

 "It's a lifelong, learning experience", said Davis. Students will use math skills to measure planting space and the growth of plants. Writing and reading skills will be used to analyze food distribution and how to deal with surplus food. A community group will be created to decide what vegetables and fruits to plant. 

Davis will receive the grant in November from Cox Charities and implement the program during the spring semester. We're excited to have these students maintaining the garden at GMS! Congratulations! #experiencethepride
