It doesn’t get more local than this. The hydroponic garden in our Pre-K classroom has delivered its first crop of lettuce and basil, which were the competitors in last Friday’s vegetable taste test. Principal Bonnet led the visits to the classrooms, where students were invited to sample the leaves and cast votes for their favorites. It was very close, with basil edging lettuce 71-69.

The monthly taste tests are organized by our Wellness Health And Movement (WHAM) Committee. Coming up for WHAM this weekend is the second annual Family Fitness Day, to be held this Saturday, May 10 from 10:30AM-12:30PM at PS 234. Bring the whole family and get active!
