TES farmstand grade 1 dec 15 for webThetford Elementary Continues to be a model school with our award winning recycling program, school gardens, composting system, and our solar array. I am pleased to announce that VT SWEEP (Vermont State-Wide Environmental Education Programs) has recognized TES as a model school. We were invited, as one of four schools, to present part of our story at the Cultivating Climate Resiliency conference on, April 9th in Montpelier. During the workshop we highlighted the First Grade Farm Stand as a project-based learning opportunity that integrated learning standards across the curriculum. – Cat Buxton, Garden Coordinator, Thetford Elementary School, Thetford, VT
