FOX SCHOOL GARDEN
Do you enjoy gardening and working with kids? Dig in and join our volunteer school garden team!
This month, we will help students plan out their raised garden beds, complete some garden maintenance and get ready to start planting next month. Volunteers are needed to open the school garden to students once a week, during lunch recess time.
A brief garden tour and volunteer orientation will take place right after the next PTA meeting on April 18th.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the PTA Garden Chair, Lianne Lauda at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the garden email distribution list.
Save the date! Do you have an incoming kindergartner (2019-2020 school year) or know someone who does? Please come to the orientation night and stop by the PTA table to pick up a special gift for your student and sign up for our summer playdate!
