Garden Rangers Blog
Visit the blog at http://enrichla.org/category/gardens/calvert-street/
Our Garden Rangers deliver our interdisciplinary garden-based education program that allows students to learn in a wonderful outdoor classroom- the garden! Our program offers students six introductory lessons about their school garden. Our program schedule allows all students in K-12 to visit the garden throughout the year. Students learn about the rules in the garden and develop their own, fun garden names. They also explore the garden and help it grow by planting new seedlings. Students learn about the different soil types and which type is in their school garden. Students explore the beneficial and harmful insects that live in their school garden. Climate and Seasons: Students explore the Los Angeles’ ecosystem and the types of weather conditions that different plants prefer. Students learn about the anatomy of a plant and learn to identify which part of the plant we commonly eat. Students work together to harvest and prepare food from the garden. The students care for and maintain the garden. This is the ultimate lesson. They can control the space through their efforts. Our Rangers blog about their work every week. Here are the latest.

Morning Drop Off and Driveway
The safety and well-being of our students is of the up,it's concern. Keeping this in mind, there are three areas which need to be followed to address this goal...
~Our school grounds open at 7:30am. Supervision is not provided prior to 7:30am. If you need to drop off your children before 7:30am, Creative Kids is a paid option that is available. Please call 818-471-7454 to discuss enrollment. Please do not drop your children off in front of the school or inside the school prior to 7:30am.

~Please cross at the cross walk when walking your children to school. This will help Calvert to continue having a safe traffic zone.
