National Farm to School Month
October is Farm to School month. This is a program that schools will be serving food that is locally grown, including the produce from the school garden. In celebration of this month, the middle school is designating Oct. 23rd as Dress like a Farmer Day.
We will have our annual K-5 costume parade on Friday, October 31, 2014 at 2:10pm. The kindergarten will start the parade through 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc. All of the students will walk through the middle school classes about 2:20pm. Early bus riders will need to be aware of their departure time.

Their work time was followed by a smoothie treat, made from locally made yogurt, our ownberry juice, our own chard, and fruit. The final celebration of the day was Dancing in the gym!
