September-December We will learn about how we can safely coexist with coyotes in our community and on our school grounds. As an urban community, we come into contact with coyotes on our school grounds. We will make posters, signs, door hangers, and teach our community about what to do to be safe and to appreciate these beautiful animals. We will host a Town Hall meeting at our school and invite our community to learn from our student experts. We also hope to work with our preschool to help them know what to do in the event that they come in close proximity to coyotes.

For the third year now, the Tom McCall Roots&Shoots group has planned to take 3 field trips to Nana Cardoon Urban Farm and Learning Center. Our primary objective would be to explore and have “hands on” experience with natural food systems. Nana Cardoon offers a rich environment for developing understanding of plant growth, harvest, processing, preservation, and preparation. A secondary objective would be developing deeper connections to our community and its assets. Expanding our understanding of Forest Grove will help us develop meaningful community projects.

We planted Emperor Tulip bulbs, like others have done around the world. Because we live in zone 8, the protocol called for us to refrigerate our bulbs to ensure a proper wintering. We also chose to run an experiment with a second bed of bulb. These we planted November 1st. The other bed we planted January 10 (as the protocol asked for). We created journals to record observations as to when they emerged and when they bloomed. This data we reported to Journey North. It was interesting to find that the earlier planted bulbs (experiment bed) emerged first and bloomed first, but they did not look as healthy as the later planted bulbs. They were a bit twisted and stunted. The wintering of bulbs did make a difference!

We plan to participate in the Facing Difference Challenge to build empathy, understanding, and peace in the our community, our hearts, and the world.

Our project is helping the people understand the true beauty of what is around them. by setting up a table and helping our incoming 7th graders build bird feeders out of the school recycling, we are helping inform educated students about the needs of the environment. We also put out a plastic jar for donations to our club to help with next year's projects. By helping with this event, we are educating students about mother nature's requirements and about how we can help. Most of all, by helping our incoming 7th graders build bird feeders is a way to let them keep a mindful memory and feed the birds of the wild.

We will get various type of plants to plant outside in this garden. These plants should be able to resist the elements. We will also use various tools such as shovels to help us dig holes. We are planning on putting many rocks around the garden with positive messages on them. Lastly, we will put benches and other areas to sit in for students in the garden.
