Help Keep our Gardens Growing
You don't need a green thumb to help our gardens this summer. Sign up to water and weed Belvedere's raised beds for a week or two and take home what you harvest.

It helps students to take an active part in their education, learn about the world around them, and use what they are learning to make a difference in the world. Through the PYP, students become globally--minded thinkers, inquirers, and problem solvers.
