After weeks and weeks of hard work the students were ready  to present their STEM proposals on building a raised garden bed at Ascension.   Each group designed their own slides to show their research and materials needed to build their garden bed.  Students also explained their prototype, which they built to represent their garden bed.  We are hoping these presentations help Ascension move one step closer to building a raised garden bed on the school grounds.  More on Mrs. Douglass' Page

 Ascension's 4th grade team played the Ascension 3rd grade team this evening and the game resulted in a 0-0 tie. Both teams gave it their all, and it's wonderful to see smiles all around at the conclusion. Good Game!

Thanks to Mrs. Bernard for the outstanding photos.
