April Field Trips and Special Events:
Spring Dress: Comfort and Safety
As the weather turns warmer, please remember that temperatures vary within the building and students should have a layer that will keep them comfortable in the air-conditioning. Please avoid spaghetti straps and short shorts or skirts. Flip flops are not recommended, as students have recess daily, and they tend to prevent students from running or they break in the process of active play.
Venable Vegetable Garden Updates
The Southern States store on Harris Street is offering *free 4 pack of vegetable plants* for Venable's Vegetable Garden to anyone who spends $25.00 or more at the plant store.
So get your garden going and help Venable’s along in the process! The offer continues into the summer. Which veggies to chose? – Southern States has a list of those we need. But if you have your own preference, go for it!
Southern States is also sponsoring a cabbage growing contest for Venable students. More info. coming soon!
Plow and Hearth has contributed a $100 gift certificate to the Venable Garden.
Students have planted seeds and are weeding the garden through PE classes with Mrs. Martin.
We have secured a commitment from CCS and facilities to purchase and install a double-sized rain barrel near the garden to help promote conservation and water our veggies.
