Thank you, National Wildlife Federation! 

 The National Wildlife Federation, as part of their Eco Schools initiative, has once again awarded James Berry Elementary School a $500 grant to be used for a variety of on-going environmental projects.  This is the third time, in as many years, that Berry has received the grant.  Through the continued support of many on campus, Berry has been fortunate to foster amazing relationships with a variety of outside organizations that lend us credibility and legitimizes our green mission.  Currently plans are in place to put the grant funds to good use, not only to strengthen Berry’s commitment to environmental studies, but to solidify our campus as one of the most innovative throughout the entire Houston Independent School District.


Recipe for Success:
Berry Elementary has been awarded a grant from Recipe for Success. Berry’s second graders are working together to establish the Seed-to-Plate nutrition education. The children will be working in their school garden planting vegetables and fruits. With this, they will learn how to properly maintain a garden, admire the garden as a habitat for certain animals and bugs, be informed of organic growing and how to harvest their own crops. Alongside with gardening, Recipe for Success teaches the students about healthy eating which allows them to experience what it is like to be a cook. The children get to participate in cooking classes where they will use fresh crops harvested from their own garden. Bon Appetit!
