Our third graders got to bring home tiny cabbage plants at the end of last year, and some worked serious gardening magic. Avery, pictured above, nurtured hers into a 8 pound giant! Find out more about the program on the Bonnie Cabbage Program website.

If you need to buy your school supplies (if you didn’t buy them already through the PTA program), you can see the supply lists that teachers in each grade put together for their students. And don’t forget: Our school receives 4-8% of every purchase you make at Amazon when you use this link: http://tinyurl.com/cmhbodq (bookmark it to use every time!), or just click on the Amazon button on the righthand column of this webpage.
We’re excited to see everyone back at school on Thursday — remember the school day at both the lower and middle school begins at 8:20am!
