Mrs. Degraaf’s 9th grade biology class recently explored the complex ecosystem at Mr. Gilley’s pond.  Hands on experiences like handling and examining plants and fish while Mrs. Lockett Degraaf explained their complexity created a rich and memorable learning time for these students.  “And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind.  And God saw that it was good.” Genesis 1:12
