Third Grade, Third Grade, How Does your Garden Grow?

Third grade huskies started their gardening season by harvesting turnips and planting radish seeds. There was lots of laughing, learning and getting hands dirty in our beautiful school garden! They also munched on the turnips they harvested, and tasted green beans and nasturtium flowers.  

Thank you PTO, parent volunteers and Garden to Table!

Paws Up!

Huskies enjoyed an outdoor all-school assembly on Friday to learn about our theme for the year: "Road to Adventure," meet all staff, and to sing the Heatherwood school song led by 5th grade teacher Anna Lyttle. Paws Up!
