Green Schoolyard meetings take place the first Thursday of every month, 3-4 PM, in the Rooftop Garden. Family-friendly workdays are the second Saturday of every month as needed, 10 AM-1 PM. No gardening knowledge required. Please join us! Our mission: to enhance and green our outdoor areas and to provide choices for all students to play, reflect, discover, and investigate their environment.
Have you heard the buzzzz? Alamo is getting its own beehive!
Our school has been selected to participate in Planet Bee Foundation’s Adopt a Hive Program as well as the Humble Honeybee Project. A beekeeper from Planet Bee will be working with third grade classes for the next two years to install a beehive, maintain it, and run a honey-spinning event. The Humble Honeybee workshop will provide our students with an extra full day of lessons.
With a focus on education, awareness, and stewardship, the Planet Bee program aims to teach children and adults the importance of the honeybee to our ecosystem. Their mission: to change the world one bee at a time! Find out more about the Planet Bee program at http://www.planetbee.org.
If you are interested in training to maintain the beehive, becoming an active bee steward, please contact Andrea Flint Oberto, firstname.lastname@example.org.
