HIGHER – Third graders in April Campbell’s class at Cathedral School were able to do some special projects to celebrate Earth Day on Friday, April 22.

The class started by planting marigold seeds in compostable pots, adding water and placing plastic sandwich bags over them to create tiny greenhouses.

Then they bundled up and walked across the street to the flowerbeds behind Christ the King Cathedral. The students picked up trash from the beds and did other prep work like pulling old foam out of the beds.
