Come to the Heights Talent Show!
Performance: Friday, March 24th, 6-8 pm in the MUR
How much talent do Del Mar Heights students have? Come to the 2017 Talent Show to find out! If your student is performing in the show, remember to come to one of the two dress rehearsals in the MUR after school on Tuesday or Wednesday this week. The Friday evening performance will be recorded, so you don’t have to sneak up to the stage to capture video of your kid—just order online access to a professionally shot video for $10, and sit back, relax and enjoy the show. While you’re there, be sure to drop by the Sixth Grade Heights Cares Bake Sale to grab a snack during intermission. Proceeds will go to San Diego Chill.
Questions? Contact Corrie Anderson.

This Week in the Garden: The Kumeyaay & Compost!
Garden Club: Fridays from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm
On March 10th, 3rd grade students did a plant search in our new Kumeyaay Garden outside Mrs. Faulkner's classroom. This is a demonstration garden that contains some of the plants Native Americans, such as the Kumeyaay, used for food, fiber and tools. While not yet installed, chia seeds, from the plant Salvia Columbariae, were collected by the Native Americans using a basket called a seedbeater, thus our tasting table featured a snack of chia seed pudding. It's not a traditional Native American dish, but it was still quite tasty!
Students in other grades helped rework the contents of our compost bin and provide additional water to the microbes who are working hard to turn our garden greenery scraps into rich soil (pictured above). At the front of the school in our Natives Garden, the California poppies and blue-eyed grass are blooming. Be sure to stop and take a look!
We hope to see parent volunteers on the March 24th during lunchtime starting at 11:30 am!
For details about our Garden Club and Programs, contact Garden Coordinator Stephanie Murphy.
