We are so lucky this year to go from zero parent teacher assistants last year during garden class time to five this year! The students and I appreciate all the parents who have come consistently during our class time this year. Teacher assistants and interns are a tremendous benefit when working in an outdoor classroom with 22+ students and back-to-back classes. They help with setting up the lesson materials, assisting students with their garden work and questions, helping with cooking parties, and helping with clean-up and garden maintenance to list a few. I’d like to highlight the class time volunteer efforts from the following parents: Walden (1st grade parent), Winnie (K Parent), Srey (K Parent), Raelynn (1st Parent) and Jennifer (1st/2nd Grade Parent). These are simply a few of the many parents involved in our garden program and we are grateful for them all!
