Last Days!

Dear ecology friends,
The last days of the 21-22 school year!
Tomorrow morning, Monday, June 13, at 8:45, 6th Grade class Room 311 will visit the garden to haul wood chips and learn about organic gardening. Volunteers are welcomed to join us!

Starting at 11:45, 1st Grade Room 210, will participate in the Tree ID Olympics, in which teams within each class field 50 questions about the trees of our school grounds. If the class is able to correctly answer at least 45 questions correctly, they will have achieved the title of Tree Champions. This is an extraordinary process to watch: the students conferring in whispered, sometimes intense discussions, before finding consensus and offering the answer. Many minds are greater than their simple sum. Room parents are welcome to attend and witness and cheer on our students.
Room 208 at 12:30
Room 211  at 1:15.

3rd grade planted 40 -50 tomato plants that they raised from seed. These fruits will ripen in the summer and be available to students when they return in Fall. 3rd grade also feasted on the lush growth of romaine lettuce, cleaned, spun and laced with ranch dressing.

For staff and families who are fans of kale,our bed of kale is lush and ready for harvest. Please stop by after school, or let me know if you would like to have a bunch.

Garden days are now 9:00 until Noon on Saturdays, thru the Summer. Families are welcome to join us to work and play and learn and eat!

Mr. Leki
