Third graders started by planting marigold seeds in compostable pots, adding water to them and placing plastic sandwich bags over them to create tiny greenhouses.

SUPERIOR — Third grade students in April Campbell's class at Cathedral School got to do a couple special projects to celebrate Earth Day on Friday, April 22.

The class started by planting marigold seeds in compostable pots, adding water to them and placing plastic sandwich bags over them to create tiny greenhouses.

Then they bundled up and walked across the street to the flower beds behind the Cathedral of Christ the King. The students picked trash out of the beds and did other prep work like digging old moss out of the beds.
