WSOC NATIVE PLANT GARDEN

Eva and Lori 

Thanks to grades 6, 7 & 8 for taking care of our Native Plant Garden in the Talbert Nature Preserve.  This garden is a collaboration on the lower section of the bluffs with our new friends, OC Parks, which was created in November 2010.  Our students worked there the first day after break to plant 5 new Sycamore Trees and a truck full of California native plants.  They also watered, created mulch from dried leaves and secured the watering bowls around existing plantings.  Sue Stoffel, our OC Parks specialist, is enthusiastic about the survival rate of the plants and the biodiversity that has been created there.

Native Plant Gardening and Nancy   

Teamwork and muscle was required to remove this plant from its container.  

WILDCATS AT THE STAPLES CENTER

Boys BB Team

The Boys and the Girls High School Basketball Teams got to play at the Staples Center over the winter break.  Thanks to everyone who came to cheer them on in their battles against the Spirit Academy.  Both games were fantastic to watch, even though the Spirit Academy put more baskets into the net.  Most of the fans stayed to watch the Clippers vs. Lakers, which turned out to be a super exciting game.  What an opportunity for our students! 

Girls BB Team

 

A special thanks to Todd Marti Photography for the great photos.  You can see the collection of work from the day.  For photos from the Boys Game, please click here.
