In connection to their science curriculum unit on ecology, Mrs. Goumas' and Mrs. Anderle's classes chose to learn about composting in LMC. Students researched how to compost, and how it benefits our environment and then applied their understanding to Patton's lunchroom waste. They studied how other schools have instituted a compost program, asked questions from a special guest expert from the University of Illinois and finally brainstormed and created a the compost presentation for the rest of the school. On Wednesday, June 1, groups of students presented their compost plan.
