Summer break | Photos| Teachers need HELP this weekend

Summer’s here! I hope the children (and their parents) are enjoying the start of their break. Let the PTO know what interesting things you all are doing this summer (with clear photos)- we’d love to post student activities on our Facebook (Click here) and our website (Click here). Please take a minute to ‘Like’ the FB page and ‘Follow’ the blog, if you’re not already doing so. The Eighth Grade Graduation photos will be posted there in the next week or so.

Meanwhile, teachers are hard at work packing up for the move to the new facility. They’re looking for some parental help this weekend and, as usual, I’m sure our parents will step up and be happy to help 🙂

Picture Alert: School Garden Work Day photos

An almost forgotten corner of the school, the school garden was visited regularly only by the 10- 12 members of the Earth Club last year. At the start of the new school year, it is baked dry and sere, filled with weeds and trash. However, with Ms. Maragos, we decide to transform it. It will be many things: ‘a food bank, a scientific lab, a quiet, green place to read and relax, a place to draw and paint’.  As Thomas Jefferson said, “No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth, and no culture comparable to that of the garden.” 

 A call for help sent out to Big Tent and parents and students turn out to help work in the school garden at short notice. Making new memories on a summer weekend, the hard work put in now will lead to more carefree and delightfully green moments later. The transformation from a ‘dry desert’ to a ‘green paradise’ is well on its way!

This past Saturday, August 17, the volunteers all worked hard to get a head start on getting 50% of the beds (7 out of 14) ready. Generous donations of tools, bags of amendments etc. were also brought in. Many thanks to Alan & Michelle Fong, Sajjad Lateef, Valerie Tran, Sanjeev Gautam, Jennifer, Noor, Hind, Bilal, Aaryan and Sahana, and of course Ms. Maragos!
