Planting Seeds for Life-Long Learning: Our School Garden

Our school garden is thriving! It was founded last year as part of a senior Capstone project; since then, the garden has grown significantly and has helped to ignite many students’ thirst to continue their education outside the typical classroom setting. Now, a group of students meets regularly to design, plant, maintain, and learn from the Chanhassen High School garden, but the whole the school community assists with the upkeep of the garden. This past spring, over 200 students volunteered to move eleven yards of garden soil into the 356 square feet of garden space.

Students in grades three through eleven who were issued a Chromebook this year will be allowed to take their Chromebook home for the summer. During that time they will be responsible for taking care of their district-issued device.  If a family does not want their child to have the Chromebook over the summer, the student must return the Chromebook and charger to their school’s media center before leaving for the summer.
