MyLunchMoney is the nation's leading site for updating and managing your student's lunchroom expenses. Introduced nearly 10 years ago, it was the first online prepayment system for school meals, allowing parents to say goodbye to sending cash and checks to the school cafeteria. In our secure environment, parents can prepay for student meals using credit/debit cards, view current account balances, set up recurring payments when the account reaches a low balance threshold, view student meal purchases, and set spending limits. Parents love it for its ease and convenience!please visit https://www.mylunchmoney.com/ to pay your lunchroom expenses or to sign up.
Join us at our 1st PA meeting of the year tonight at 6pm in the music room.
Childcare and snacks will be provided in the library.
Spring has sprung in the CPE courtyard garden! Flowers, from bulbs the kids planted last fall, are blooming: daffodils, tulips, iris, and more.
Classes have begun planting early greens. Two classes (Catlin/Sarah and Marilyn) started seedlings indoors over a month ago and transplanted them into their garden beds these last two weeks. They planted: kale (an all around favorite), bok choi, tat soi, mizuna (Japanese) spinach, and various lettuces. They and other classes have direct seeded early greens and other plants into their beds these last two weeks as well. Beds now include: radishes, carrots, lettuce varieties, kale, sugar snap peas, beans, more bok choi and tat soi and mizuna.
I moved the large bushes that were in the vegetable beds. A few into the ground bed in the courtyard, and the rest into the beds on 106th St. Take a look. The front of the school looks better already.
With really warmer weather (beginning of May) we'll plant our summer veggies: tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, CORN!, basil, and more. We'd love some help with watering. We need a good supply of bamboo stakes. Please remind your children, that tasting/eating is done by the children in the classrooms that have done the planting.
