Somerset Intermediate School is located in Westover, Maryland on the Eastern Shore and serves grades sixth-eighth. The school is part of the Somerset County Public School system. The mission of Somerset Intermediate is to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and values necessary for success in the global and technologically complex society in which they live.
Somerset Intermediate joined MSSP in the Fall of 2014 thanks to a grant from the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore. This grant allowed us to plant a Pollinator Habitat Garden in the front of the school with over 150 native plants. This planting was completed by students from the Green Thumb Club, led by Mr. Rush.
Somerset Intermediate has been active with their Sister School in Mexico. The students have sent each other PenPal letters and have talked over Skype.
Somerset plans to continue maintaining their garden and interacting with their Sister School in the 2016-2017 school year.
