We are getting ready for spring in Hartland!
• Our K-2 pod has plants growing for our gardens outside. The plants are growing really fast!
• Our 3-5 pod has planted lettuce inside, using our new grow cart from Cafe Services. This will be our first crop and we hope to be eating it soon!
• The 6-8 pod has planted seeds to get ready for their salsa garden.
Our K-5 students participated in a healthy snack competition and each class kept track of what the children brought in to eat. We used the Whoa, Slow, Go guide to calculate points. The students were really excited and proud of what they brought in for their snacks.
Our 6-8 students participated in our annual smoothie competition. Each advisory picked from a list of healthy foods for ingredients in their smoothies. We had 11 judges pick the top three smoothies and the winners will get to make healthy pizzas for lumch.
During all of these events, we had our annual Health Week where FTS provided some of the healthy snacks we had each day. The last day we had a “bring a fruit to school day” and we ended up with so much fruit that we made fruit salads for all K-8 students.
