Watching OUR Garden Grow

Michigan's Lt. Governor-Dick Posthumus "growing up working with my grandfather on our family farm, he always used to tell me, "You have to start with the basics. You can' t bring in the harvest without first planting the seed."

As a child, I never quite understood what he meant. As I grew up, however, I realized those words could especially be applied to the ability to read. In order for Michigan' s children to reap the benefits of a quality education, they must first have the seeds of reading planted within them.

Reading to our students

West will be making a garden throughout the month of March. As our students read, read, and read, our garden will grow!
(pictures will be placed on this site later in March!)
