GARDEN CLUB: The courtyard in the middle of the school is central to TMS' new Garden Club. At TMS, students learn about ecosystems. This allows our students to have a deeper understanding of concepts and apply their knowledge to real hands-on experiences. In regards to the garden, there are many benefits. The school garden can be: a source of food for improving children’s diets and nutrition sources; a source of healthy influences -- physical activity, ingredients for school meals; an area of learning -- about nature, agriculture, nutrition, math, and other subjects; a place of pleasure and recreation -- flowers and shrubs, play areas, shade, eating areas; a continuing lesson in respecting the environment and taking pride in one’s school; a gathering spot for our community to socialize. Join in the fun!
