Welcoming spring outside Wells Elementary School on a day in mid-May are WES students from Mrs. Fox's kindergarten class with STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) teacher Henry Ingwersen. Students and teacher are preparing the soil for planting in several raised plant beds. Later, kindergarten and third grade classes planted beets, tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, lettuce, peas, carrots, and potatoes as part of learning about plant needs, life cycles, plant structures, and gardening."
