A Roaring Welcome for ‘Dinoman’

A Roaring Welcome for ‘Dinoman’

Second grade scientists from Mt. Pleasant Elementary School welcomed “Dinoman,” along with his blow-up dinosaurs,  fossils and artifacts. Starting with a grade-level assembly in the morning, paleontologist Bob Lisaius captured the students’ attention with his facts about the different dinosaur species and his work in the field of paleontology. Following the assembly, Mr. Lisaius visited each of the individual classroom for a hands-on lesson featuring artifacts that date back millions of years such as dinosaur horns, claws, teeth and fossilized rocks.

With six different garden beds to prepare and care for, the student council members at Mt. Pleasant Elementary School don’t mind getting their hands a bit dirty.

Starting in April, the students head outdoors to start preparing their garden, which they hope will be filled with plenty of vegetables by the end of the school year. They start by weeding and raking the beds to get ready for a schoolwide planting day in May. 

The imitative started about four years ago, according to adviser and Mt. Pleasant Elementary teacher Stephen Jackowski. The six garden beds were donated by local Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops. The student council cares for the beds, planting beans, tomatoes, potatoes, lettuce, corn and other various vegetables. All of the vegetables are then donated to the local food pantry in June and during the summer months.

While the beds are cared for weekly by the student council, which consists of third, fourth and fifth grade students, the schoolwide planting initiate gives all the students an opportunity to help give back to their local community.
