For Earth Day, Pettigrew Academy students spent extra time experiencing nature by gardening with the Ellis County Junior Master Gardening Specialists Mrs. Davis and Mrs. DeHeus. Students tend to their garden at the school under the direction of Ellis County Master Gardeners who work with students on a regular basis to teach horticulture and nature lessons.

Also, Pettigrew Academy student Scarlett Hajovsky makes a new friend, letting a snail crawl across her hand.
