Goat Math at Hanover Street School

Second graders at Hanover Street School in Lebanon, NH are currently collecting change to buy a goat through Heifer International. In honor of World Hunger Day on October 16, all second graders read ‘Beatrice’s Goat’ by Page McBrier with their Art teacher, Mrs. Cardillo. A student from Mrs. Hayes’ class even created what she calls ‘Goat Math’ as the students regularly account for money they have raised. As part their World Hunger day celebration, students will also be harvesting potatoes from the school garden and working together with our Cafe’ Service Director, Dennis Samuel, to prepare a potato soup to share. – Marjie Bish, Teacher, Hanover Street School, Lebanon, NH
