A Trip to the Botanical Center!

Third graders had the opportunity to go to the Botanical Center in Des Moines yesterday. A huge thank you to the Gilbert Education Foundation for making this happen. They were able to learn about numerous plants and the extreme sizes they can grow to. They were fascinated by the sizes of the seeds and how they are able to survive in some habitats. They also had the opportunities to learn about climates and ecosystems. The students say, “it was better than we expected!”

A Wish Come True

On Thursday Gilbert High Schooler, Amy Stanton was granted a “She Shed” made by her fellow classmates. The Gilbert High shop class worked Make-A-Wish to make this “She Shed” not knowing it was for Amy.

Amy was Diagnosed with a brain tumor and has put up a strong fight for a couple years. She has never let anything dull her shine. She has had two brain surgeries and continues to fight. This “She Shed” will be used as a cozy place for Amy to reflect and have a place for herself.

Thank you to our Building Trade class teacher, Danny Jones, Ames Home Builders Association, and Make-A-Wish for making this wish a reality.
