Fundraising Drive for Community Garden

We are happy to announce that our next fundraising drive for the Community Garden will be held from April 17 - 24th. It is a week long event that begins with parents (yes this means you!) at home. As we all begin our children's seasonal clothing clean out, please put aside several pieces of outgrown, but good quality clothing items and donate them to our Reuse, Reduce, Recycle Resale shop we hold in our own school! It will be held in the Parents Lounge the week of Wednesday, April 17th through Wednesday, April 24th so everyone from all classes will have a chance after morning drop off or before pick up to browse, shop or contribute something. We hope you will join us by donating several pieces of nice clothing in good condition for another child to enjoy. Clothing may be dropped off in advance to either Anne or Nina at the front desk to begin to be sorted in preparation. Please try to give generously! Your participation is wanted and needed. We really are working hard towards raising needed funds - the money earned from this season's Resale Shop will fund plants, beneficial insects, spring fair annuals, mulch, plants, top soil, river rocks and much more.

Many parents may not know that it is only through our involvement, parent sponsorship and funding that our nursery and kindergarten children have the chance and privilege to visit El Jardin del Paraiso with their friends on nature adventures throughout the seasons almost daily. One of the ways we help support the garden is to have family garden days and so please save the date for our next School Wide Family Garden Day on Sunday April 28th from 11am-1pm more details to follow. In the meantime, on behalf of myself, Miss Patricia, the Garden committee, and the school, we thank you in advance and are grateful for all your support!
