June 7, 2009

George Watts Families, Teachers, and Friends!

It’s time to get started installing the Edible Garden at George Watts!  We need lots of help to get it ready for our students to use in the fall.

Please come out this summer to help create this wonderful addition to our school!

Mark your calendar for our 3 summer workdays:

•    Saturday, July 18, 8:00 – 10:30 a.m.
•    Saturday, August 1, 8:00 – 10:30 a.m.
•    Saturday, August 8, 8:00 – 10:30 a.m.

Each workday starts early in the morning, so we can beat the heat!
