Working for a Return to Campus
All 9th grade magnet students in Experimental Science 1 spent the day at Holiday Park experiencing the Everglades Up Close and Personal.
After a brief explanation of how everyone is "affected so they are connected," students spent the day in different activities: riding in an airboat, testing water quality at different locations, dip netting for invertebrates and "slogging" through the slough. Photos in FIELD TRIPS.
Birch State Park Memories
Magnet upperclassmen joined YEA! at Hugh Taylor Birch State Park for canoeing, collecting water samples, cleaning the beach, hiking on a nature trail as they identified and characterized the flora and fauna at Hugh Taylor Birch State Park. Photos in FIELD TRIPS.
Planting Edible Gardens
Students in the Honors Experimental Science got down and dirty learning about sustainable gardening on campus. Freshmen created above-ground garden beds and used appropriate soil for edible plants.
Throughout the year they maintained the gardens while adding compani9on plants. Students enjoyed the mature plants
as they ate the "fruits of their labor."
Parents Raise Funds
During the year, the magnet parent group, Fans of the Everglades Restoration Magnet (FERM) host activities to raise funds to help the program.
If you shop online and use Amazon, please consider using FERM as your donation spot. It cost you nothing but makes a difference to the students as funds help cover trips and school supplies.
