Teacher Appreciation Week

We had so much fun celebrating our teachers last week with a BBQ lunch, breakfast from Star Bagel, Five Points Pizza and cookies, and a Ben & Jerry’s cart! We truly do appreciate our super hero teachers and staff!

Garden Updates

Thanks to those who helped at our garden clean up day – led by Avery de Giron, volunteers weeded the beds and mowed the grass, repaired and painted the shed door and parts of the fence, added fresh soil to some of the bed, and planted some seedlings and plants. 

Ms. Christa Williams’ students took advantage of our beautiful garden area recently and planted beans and sunflowers and watered the plants, and released butterflies they have been raising from caterpillars (pictured above).
