The kindergarten classes collaborated with the Charleston Animal Society to create real and sustainable improvement in lifesaving and humane care for animals in the shelter. The students #madeitbetter by creating Boredom Busters for the animals. This project was made possible by the 2017 PSE STEAM Color Run!


Second Grade

Our second grade classes research the issues surrounding water conservation and access to clean water. They determined their "water footprints" and generated solutions for water conservation. In art infusion, they #madeitbetter by designing and creating a mosaic fence to surround the rain barrel that will be used to collect water for the school gardens. This project was made possible by the 2017 PSE STEAM Color Run!


Fourth Grade

Fourth graders researched the importance of honey bees in the pollination of  the food we eat and identified ways to ensure the survival and success of the honey bee. With the help of the 2017 PSE STEAM Color Run funds, the students were able to #makeitbetter by designing and planting a pollinator garden--complete with a pollinator hotel!
