"from the seed, to the table"
At Horizon Montessori - Weslaco, we want our students to know where their food comes from and how to grow it. Our district farm grows in alignment with the cafeteria needs. Our students play a role in what they daily eat at our school by growing the produce that will later be part of their lunch meal. Horizon Montessori - Weslaco students make healthy habits from the seed, to the table.
Students who visit Andy Downing, district farmer, at the district farm engage in organic practices, teaching them about soil health, seeding techniques, and harvesting.
Students filled with pride harvest their successful planting from two months earlier.
Alexis Bocanegra is currently a ELA teacher at Horizon Montessori - Weslaco.
"I love working with the students and highly enjoy watching their knowledge base substantially increase year after year," said Bocanegra.
"Teaching is exciting and each and every day is unique with new challenges. Teaching provides the ability to mold students into productive, bright future members of society," Bocanegra responded.
