Polo district gets $10,000

POLO – Thanks to the support of local farmers and America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, Polo CUSD 222 received a $10,000 grant to build a greenhouse for students.

Students will work on science projects relating to plant growth, photosynthesis, plant life cycles, sustainable gardening, and water conservation.

According to Beth Wiegmann, curriculum director, students also will use the greenhouse for growing produce, which will be served in the cafeteria.

America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, offers farmers the chance to nominate a local public school district, which then can compete for a grant of up to $25,000 to enhance math or science education.

Polo CUSD 222 faculty, local farmers and Monsanto representatives celebrated with a check presentation ceremony during a football game Oct. 4 at Polo Community High School.
