The SA is hosting an on-line fundraising campaign to raise money for
the ADA-Accessible Trail and Amphitheater to be built this August.
7th Generation has challenged us to raise half of the money by August.
If we are successful, they will match our funds!
Please consider donating to the campaign! There are sponsorship
levels for everyone with the first level starting at $15! Just think
if every family contributed $15 and asked their friends and family
members to do the same! We'd raise enough money for the trail AND for
an ADA-accessible Treehouse (to be built next year if we can raise the

We have been fortunate to have so much support last year from so many friends in getting our gardens underway. Now we have several more raised beds out back, in addition to our wonderful ABC Garden and the lovely shade garden on the eastern corridor near the kindergarten rooms. We are putting together a schedule of friends and families that would like to stop by and help water and weed our beautiful gardens this summer.
If you are interested in being a part of The Garden Team, please stop by and speak to Mia or AnneTewksbury-Frye, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org It takes just a little time to come and water and do a little weeding, and our gardens and students will love you!!!
