The Gardening Club at Tillotson

For the second year in a row, Tillotson school has been able to offer the students an elective in gardening. Last year was a success, but there were many lessons to learn about growing vegetables indoors. This year we have had increased success and have already begun harvesting snap peas and green beans. In addition to some carrots, we are growing seven varieties of pepper, four heirloom tomato and three cherry tomato plants, as well as herbs such as: basil, culinary sage, and thyme. With each passing day, the students become more engaged and invested as they witness the growth of plants they helped cultivate. Often students walking by the classroom poke their head in and ask questions demonstrative of their fascination. Gardening has been a joy to teach as it brings together many students that might not otherwise interact.

Over the past several years Tillotson School students in grades 5-12 have had the opportunity to participate in the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Therapeutic League (WPITL) for intramural sports.  We have been able to take part in cheer-leading, basketball, flag football and kickball.    The league is not overly competitive and was set up to allow students of all abilities to participate.  All student athletes who want to be a part of a team can as long as they follow the behavior, attendance and academic standards established for participation.  Playing times are equal for everyone and not based on skill level.  The league has allowed many of our students who have never been a part of a team a great opportunity to do so in a safe environment.  The goals of the league are to promote participation and to teach fair play, team work and good sportsmanship.    One of the great parts of  the program is both practices and games occur during the school day, taking the stress of getting students athletes where they need to be off of the parents.
