Gardening Club is an after-school club designed to teach students where food comes from. Each meeting will involve a fun lesson as well as students taking part in building, planting, and maintaining the garden. They will even get to take home some samples of their vegetable crops!
The club meets every other Tuesday.
The specific dates are: 2/6, 2/20, 3/6, 3/20, 4/10, 4/24, 5/8.
The class size is limited to 20 students. Placement in the club will be determined by lottery. Students who did not participate in a before- or after-school club during the Fall Semester will be given priority. If your child is chosen through the lottery, the club is asking for a voluntary $10 contribution to be paid when the club starts and your child has been enrolled.
Gardening Club is led by parent volunteers, but they can’t do it alone! The club must have 3 additional parent volunteers per week for it to run effectively for all students. Parents are required to sign up for one (1) volunteer date prior to the PTA clubs kick-off date of February 5th. Volunteers can be parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. Failure to sign up for a volunteer date before the deadline will result in your child’s removal from the club. You must be a registered volunteer with Pinellas County Schools. If your child gets into the club, at that time you will be emailed instructions on how to register as a volunteer or re-activate if you are already a volunteer.
Please register your child online by 1/22/18. The lottery will then be held and you will be informed via email if your child was selected for Spring Semester. At that time, you will also receive a link asking you to sign up by 2/5/18 for a volunteer date.
