FOX GARDEN UPDATE

SUMMER FUN!  

 

Looking for a fun and healthy activity to do with your family and friends this summer? Love fresh fruits and veggies?

 

Please volunteer to help keep the garden going this summer and enjoy the harvest! No gardening experience needed. Training will be provided.

 

What is needed?

  • Watering: The automated irrigation system will be running daily. During really hot weeks, add a little extra water using the hydrant and hose or watering can.

  • Weeding: Pull a few weeds in the raised garden beds and in the bark chip paths. Weeding needs are minimal since all fruit, vegetable and herb plants are grown in raised garden beds.

  • Harvesting: When produce is ripe, please pick, wash and enjoy! Depending on the month, you will find strawberries, blueberries, sugar snap peas, lettuce, garlic, onions, herbs, tomatoes, peppers, green beans, carrots, flowers, etc. *See the signup genius for more details.

--->Please sign up for the SUMMER at:

 https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a0545afaf23a75-dorothy10

 

*Garden Parties this Summer: Sign up to receive garden updates at https://www.dorothyfoxpta.com/fox-garden to be informed of Summer Garden Party dates (dependent on the weather and crop progress).

 

Let's help provide fresh produce to families in our community by harvesting and delivering excess produce to the East County Food Bank in Camas and Children's Home Society in Washougal and let's keep the garden going over the summer so students can return to a garden that is thriving in September.

 

Questions? Please contact Lianne, PTA Garden Chair at liannedfepta@hotmail.com 

THANK YOU FROM OUR PTA PRESIDENT

 

President’s End-of-Year Message:

I can’t believe summer is almost here! I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many people who have made this year such a huge success.

 

I would like to thank the PTA board (Trisha, Tami, Allison, Robyn, Michelle, Stacey & Nissa) for all their dedication to helping out whenever and wherever they were needed. Such a talented and giving team!

 

I would like to wish a fond farewell to our outgoing PTA VP Tami Adcock for all her dedicated years on the PTA board, her volunteer work throughout the school and especially her dedication to the handwriting program. Her son Noah is graduating this year, so we are going to miss them both!

 

I’d like to also thank our PTA chairs and their volunteers who helped out at so many events throughout the year. We can’t do what we do without our volunteers! We have accomplished and supported so much this year: 

Our success depends upon our Fox families. Thank you for helping the PTA succeed this year. I want to wish all of you a healthy, safe and happy summer. Our PTA board will see you at Back to School Night so stop by our table and see how you can help support our school next year!

 

Sincerely,Tammy Speer, PTA President
