Something Different from the Kitchen

Our Cook and Food Service Director Ellen Vance now purchases vegetables and milk from local sources! We are eating salads and other veggies from Canoe Creek, Humble Hands and Patchwork Green farms in Winneshiek County. Our breakfast, lunch and snack-time milk comes from Homestead Dairy in Waukon, and our yogurt is from Country View Dairy in Hawkeye. Soon we will be eating apples from Peake's orchard.

Sixth Grade Builders

On Thursday, Aug. 30, 2018, local engineer, Dale Kittleson, taught 6th graders how to use their knowledge of structures, forces, gravity, loads, and friction to build a special little domed hut out of the natural willow that grows in NE Iowa. It took only about an hour and a half to plan and build the willow house located in the North Winneshiek garden. Sixth graders will be inviting younger grades for tours of their structure.
