Marcela Marcelo Elementary School enjoined to participate in a “PLANT IN A POT PROJECT” of Deped SDO-Pasay. This aims to help sustain and maintain the clean and green project of school and as well as in the community. This project will be part of learners’ output in all subject areas. Class advisers and EPP/TLE Teachers inform the learners to take pictures together with their plants and send it to the GCs. Likewise; it will be posted to the Facebook page of the school. Through this “Plant in a Pot Project, a learner can experience joy in planting especially in this time of pandemic because gardening is a natural stress reliever. Being outside in the fresh air and sunshine can improve mood and feel rejuvenated and overall happy. Growing your own produce also gives a great sense of accomplishment. Another thing is we are teaching each learner to be responsible by keeping their plants healthy.
