Stewart Elementary School
Gardens

style=”font-size: 11pt;”>The program at Stewart
Elementary School began in the spring of
2014. We created a unique schedule to
tailor the subject matter to the curriculum
timing at the school. In some cases,
this meant just using an existing lesson at a
different time of the year. In other
cases, the lesson
material has been altered to meet the
curriculum timing at
Stewart Elementary. The classes meet
every other week with some on a “week 1″
rotation and others on a “week 2″
rotation.
