Pelican Elementary School Receives $1500 LEAN Grant

Jun 1, 2015

Students from Amy Rogers' third grade class are busy leveling the truck load of topsoil (delivered from Musson's) in preparation for the school garden.

Pelican Elementary School students and staff have a new opportunity for hands-on learning. They will be planting a school garden, thanks to a $1500 grant from LEAN—which stands for Linking Education, Activity, and Nutrition—and is a coalition through the Oneida County Health Department. The hope is that students and staff will able to harvest and taste-test their hard work this fall.
