You may have noticed that our garden shed is looking better than ever! A huge thank you to grandparent volunteer, Jaime Sanchez, who replaced some rotten boards and repainted the shed over the weekend. Your effort will give our gardeners a boost of energy as they start working on the fall/winter garden.
SUNFLOWER SEED CONTEST
Our garden's sunflowers have finished growing, but a new kind of fun has just begun. I distributed the flower heads among the classes for seed counting and now we are having a contest to see who can guess the number of seeds produced by the sunflowers in our garden. Parents and students are welcome to submit one guess at the front desk. The winner receives a jack o' lantern pumpkin. Entries must be in by Monday, September 18th.
STUDENT GARDENING COMMITTEE
The application deadline for the Student Gardening Committee has officially closed. The applicants will now be asked to write essays about why they want to be on the Committee and the top picks will be interviewed. The group will be in charge of planting our fall/winter garden in preparation for teaching the other students how to do the gardening jobs this coming spring. I will soon be in touch with all the parents who signed up to volunteer in the garden- thank you!
