 Garden Club Harvest

Remember the Garden Club's spring plant sale? Upper School students are harvesting the benefits of those tiny seedlings now that they are full-grown, edible plants for the lunchtime salad bar! Learning can be tasty!



  • There will be a pep rally this Friday to mark the start of this year's Boosterthon Fun Run/Color Run Fundraiser! Both Lower and Upper School will be raising funds for their campuses, ending on September 22's in-school run. The PTO puts on this event (which really is a lot of fun) and can use volunteers like YOU! Let them know if you can lend a hand at This email address is being protected from spambots.
