Andrea Jones via TES PTO posted: Preschoolers think sunny days are perfect…
... for visits to the school garden to explore, play tag and hide & seek in the cover crop! I agree.
Brooke’s post:Garden Club will start Tuesday, April 24th.
Citizens for Great Toledo Schools posted a link to The Chronicle’s story DeBolt Attends Toledo School Board Meeting to Discuss Grant, Bond.
From that article: The (school) board said it wants to hold a town hall in May to specifically discuss the bond.
Dykstra said the school board will vote on whether or not to put the proposed bond measure in front of voters at its next meeting, which will be held 7 PM at Toledo Middle School on May 17.
