Planting the seeds of inspiration

October 2019


Each of the classes at Queen of Apostles School takes care of the main courtyard and for one month during the school year focuses attention around the Mary statue for their class. This year, as part of a social studies lesson about the state of California, the third graders planted California Poppies in small blue green plastic pots. Poppies are the official California state flower. The students have been monitoring the progress of the plants to learn about their life cycles as part of a science lesson. They recently exuberantly proclaimed “they’re sprouting!” Once the plants have grown a bit more, they will be placed near the base of the statue of Mary in the main courtyard in November.
