The Secret Magical Amazing Caring Science Garden

As the 2021-22 school year began, third grade science & social studies teacher Shirley Adamo, received a grant for roughly $2,500. This grant, called Project Green, was chosen to sow the seeds of St. Mary’s Academy Charter School’s new pollinator garden. As spring approached, Director of Maintenance Patti Johnson and her staff, Regina Puentes, Lionel Garza, Mason Calliham, and Robert Casarez, worked with Adamo and her third grade students to begin prepping the area for the garden. During class time, the students learned the ins and outs of gardening. Students were eager to get their hands dirty “literally” with digging, pulling weeds, and planting flowers and deciding where the plants should go. Another staff member, Cindy Brown, brought her sixth grade science students to pair up with the third grade students to help and learn about the garden as well. Adamo had one goal in mind throughout this project by teaching her students that even small gardens can make huge differences.

Kenedy woman’s life transformed by hitting weight goal

Clothes that once fit are happily no longer a viable option for Lisa Luehrs, 30, of Kenedy. Putting aside these once go-to wardrobe choices is a joyful pursuit for her, she said. For more than a year, the Hampton, Virginia, native said she has watched the scale reflect her personal determination to end a cycle of weight gain that had her on the scale at 312 pounds in March 2021. Today, she said she weighs 175 pounds – a loss of 137 life-altering pounds. Along the way, she fought severe depression and deeper thoughts centered on a low sense of confidence and self-worth.
