Little Seeds Under the Sea
In 1968, Ringo Starr overheard a sea captain explaining how an octopus spends his day…traveling the ocean floor searching for shiny objects to build gardens and thought it was one of the happiest things he had ever heard and the “Octopus’ Garden” song was born! As young children begin their school journey they spend their days searching for all the beauty and magic and like little sponges they pick up treasures of knowledge all around them. At the Stephen Knight Center for Early Education the students have started to plant their seeds of knowledge to share and show how their imaginations are full and so very colorful.
Each Friday the students at SKCEE wear tie-dye t-shirts to show how much they love their school and learning with their teachers. The shipwrecked wood signs signify the most important seeds of knowledge planted this year by their teachers. The other sparkling seeds scattered about signify the many more to bloom in their upcoming years. The garden sticks are in homage to Vochol and the gift of the Huichol culture they have shared. The students at Stephen Knight Center for Early Education are aware that wonder is all around them and will continue to collect magical treasures for their gardens of knowledge each and every year!
