School of Distinction - Year 2!!!!!
Mandy reminder: the Cherrydale orders are due tomorrow! Thank you in advance for your help raising money for field trips and other fun/educational activities for TES students.
Andrea Jones* shared: It’s been another full and busy day so between classes and conference night I pulled out leftovers from one of the 3 soups I made this past week from veggies in the school garden!
Butternut squash, carrots, potatoes, radishes, herbs, etc. Super delicious and fun for the kids to eat the food they helped care for and harvest! Thanks again, TES, for offering this opportunity to our children and the community to experience gardening, learn about and connect with our food source!
*With Brooke Sellards Acosta, Stephanie Hudson, Pam Peake Meade, and Angela Norberg Bacon
