GARDEN COMMITTEE: Let’s get ready to do some gardening! All students will participate in the planting of the Ivy Hill garden plots on Monday, May 16th so please dress appropriately. We will be planting a “Vegetable Dip Garden” – all those vegetable kids loved to dip in dressing. Also, all the children will get a chance to sample the vegetables they plant in a special “Vegetable Dip Tasting” after we harvest the vegetables in the fall.
Thank you to Julie Soderna for offering a wonderful exercise class for the staff!
