P.S. 225Q Students Loved The Tulips
Back in October 2002, P.S. 225Q sent an article to The Wave describing a special Internet program called Journey North. This program charts the arrival of spring from the south to the north, as Red Emperor Tulips emerge and bloom. Mrs. Basil’s fourth grade class and Ms. Schleifman’s second grade class have been keeping journals about the tulips progress. Basil’s fourth graders have been observing the bulbs that were planted on the school property around the flagpole on Rockaway Beach Boulevard. They were very pleasantly surprised when the saw the tulips emerging despite the unseasonable snowstorm two weeks ago. Schleifman’s second graders have been part of a special Journey North program at Gateway Environmental Study Center with ranger Rita Mulalley. The students returned to Gateway for their third visit on April 15.
