UNION, NJ – Students in Burnet Middle School’s Title I Summer Enrichment Program cultivated the plants they germinated from seedlings to flowers and tended to the fruit and vegetables from their garden.

The Title I Enrichment program includes a comprehensive social and emotional component along with a health and wellness element, which includes the use of a gardening program utilizing the latest addition to Burnet's greenhouse.

Yoga, taught by teacher Katie Dowson, also helped train students become more aware of their inner being, learning to subdue their minds and center themselves to concentrate on how to focus on positive aspects of their lives and obtain goals to be successful in their school year.
