Winterfest is Coming!
Thursday, Dec. 15th, 1:00-2:30 pm
Rain or shine—our annual musical tradition will go on! Students have been hard at work practicing their holiday songs for this event. Parents should plan to stay for the entirety of the program as teachers will not be able to release students early. This year, 6th graders will open the performance, followed by Kindergarteners and subsequent grade levels. Our 5th graders will close the show with a finale! This is one of only two school-wide celebrations during the year, so it is a special event for our school community.
Come early to get parking and a good seat. We will have a full house!
Farm-to-Table: Calling Heights Families Who Like to Eat!
We are looking for parents & students who are interested in our Farm to Table (FtT) program, which is meant to encourage healthy, delicious eating from locally grown food. Our events will include working in the Heights gardens, touring local gardens that supply restaurants, and both on- and off-site events featuring local chefs preparing dishes using ingredients our children have grown in the Heights Garden. Learn more about the FtT program here.
Want to be informed of upcoming events? Sign up here.

This Week in the Garden: Persimmons!
Garden Lunch Club: Fridays 11:30 am to 12:30 pm
This week in the garden, students prepared the soil in the 1/2 barrels for the next planting, began digging trenches for potato planting in The Patch, learned how to use and take care of hand pruners and harvested persimmons. Upper grade students were taught knife safety and usage skills and were then supervised while preparing the fresh Fuyu persimmon harvest and dried Hoshigaki persimmons for our tasting table.
Next week, students will assemble new compost bins, plant cover crops in the half barrels, continue with the potato planting area preparation and harvest luffa.
For details about our Garden Club and Programs, contact Garden Coordinator Stephanie Murphy.
