The Beginning of a Garden

Last Friday several classes gathered outside to plant cantelope, beans, tomatoes, and lettuce seeds in styrofoam cups. That will be the beginning of our garden at Irondale Middle! Stay tuned for more information on our progress!

School Library Month and The Declaration for The Rights to Libraries

Have you signed a Declaration lately? It may already be out and ready to sign at your local Botanical Gardens, a museum, a public library or a school library, but this is a great time to sign a Declaration for The Rights to Libraries.

This Declaration is a tool to get the word out to the world and the media that libraries are important to their communities. What better time to sign than School Library Month? Here is a link to more information about libraries do and can provide for you. If you have not been to a library lately, go check one out in your community!

How Will Our Garden Grown?

You may or may not know this, but I received a grant for starting a garden at Irondale Middle School! Special thanks to the Whole Foods Foundation for "seed" money to grow a garden!

Here is a link to a garden wall:

Upcoming Library and School Events at Irondale

It is that busy time of year for schools when testing, grant reports, sports, and fine arts events collide. There is always time for one more though. Our next event is April 15. Fine Arts Night will include a book fair in the library where you can pick up some summer reading, a band concert, an art department showing, and other events in the school are being added.

We hope you will join us from 5:30 - 6:30 on Tuesday the 15th!
