The Fourth Grade Resource has been very busy getting their pond up and running again. Last year Ms. Faherty's Third Grade Class became very interested in building a pond and a garden. As part of their study of France and viewing the Monet exhibit at NOMA they decided to build a pond just like Monet's. With the help of great parents like Mr. Antoine and Ms. Leblanc that dream became a reality. This year some of those same students are continuing their study of pond life/ecosystems/habitats. They visited Jean Lafitte Park and they will be visiting Bayou Savage next year (1996). They were also fortunate to have a guest speaker, Mr. Dan Gill, a local horticulturist. share his pond life/aquatic garden expertise. The pond should be in working condition very soon.
