2015 Taterthon Winners Announced!

Students from Tiogue School in Coventry were honored recently for their efforts in the 2015 Taterthon. Their Teacher, Dr. Donna Raptakis, lead the effort and hosted a special harvest day in her classroom where those students that elected to grow their potatoes in containers were able to unveil their results right in the classroom! Students who created exemplary scientific notebooks documenting their experiences were also honored. In recognition of their collective effort, the class was awarded a gift certificate from C&A Landscaping of Coventry for materials for their school garden or outdoor classroom. Students from several other Rhode Island schools also participated in the first Taterthon, including Western Coventry Elementary, North Scituate Elementary, and the Paul Cuffee School.
