Today the students at Lithia Springs sustained their love for gardening by planting vegetables! The vegetable plants the students planted were kindly donated to the school by Lowes. The students enjoyed planting their own plant that they have the chance to watch grow and eventually produce real food!
With the awesome new equipment donated by retired Tampa Bay Lightning hockey player Glen Metropolit, students in the Sports and Recreation club practiced their skills! Students took turns shooting at the goal while focusing on developing their hockey skills alongside their friends.
Today at Lithia Springs students participated in an enrichment activity to thank our veterans for their service to our country. The students wrote thankful messages on a large poppy flower created from construction paper.
Retired Tampa Bay Lightning hockey player Glen Metropolit paid a visit to the students at Lithia Springs today! Students got to learn about our local hockey team and even received equipment so that they can practice their own hockey skills!
To celebrate Halloween students at Lithia Springs worked as a team to create their own pumpkin murals. Students chose a pumpkin then used paint to create faces and fun designs on the pumpkin! After they finished the pumpkins were displayed around the school for everyone to see!

With winter fast approaching the students at Lithia Springs were excited to celebrate by creating igloos. Before the activity, the students learned about tundra ecosystems. Tundra ecosystems are treeless regions found in the arctic. The students created an igloo they believed would keep them safe in the -30 degrees Fahrenheit weather in the tundra ecosystems. The base of the igloo is a plate with a bowl secured on top. To create a snow effect the students pasted marshmallows on the bases they created. After achieving the perfect igloo the students used markers to add color to the igloo.
The gardening club made their watering bottles more personal today by decorating them. The students used markers to create a unique design on each of the bottles. The activity was made even more fun by each of the students being able to wear their new set of gardening gloves while they decorated. The students learned that just like us, plants need water to survive and grow!
