Summer Garden Watering, Please Help!!!!!!!!

There are 11 weeks in summer and we hope to have 2 people/families per week to "adopt" our gardens. It will involve coming in on Monday and Thursday of that week during business hours to water. It will take about 1 hour to accomplish this. (That's only 2 hours the whole summer to put towards your volunteer hours!!) Your kids will enjoy helping or playing at the K-2 playground while you tend the garden and you are welcome to bring a picnic and enjoy the grass and shade...

If you are interested in helping us out, e-mail Amy at alzycat@gmail.com with the week you can sign up for.

Meet Amy in the Kinder-Garden for a walk-through on
Friday June 12th from 11:15 to 12:30pm just before school lets out, to go over what needs to be cared for. Its important that you attend in order to help out for the summer. Thanks !!

Earth Day. Remember?

Like the first three months of the year, April slipped by all too quickly, and here we are nearly half-past May! I know it's been three weeks since our 5th graders hosted our Earth Day celebration, but better [21 days] late than never, right?

It was a great success, with CJ Hawk and Rachel Ulloa's 5th grade students hosting booths and demonstrations developed from their "Wonder" essays. We were even treated to a couple live music performances, for which our outdoor classroom made the perfect stage.
