First Day of Garden Program

Today was our first day in the PTO-sponsored Garden program.

The kindergarten class will visit the garden each Thursday in the fall and spring trimesters under the knowledgable eye of Mr. Hansen, our garden program director.

Mr. Hansen retired last year from Dunham School where he had served as our special education teacher. Mr. Hansen has been an enthusiastic gardener for many years and he looks forward to sharing his love of gardening with Dunham students in his new job. All of us at Dunham are very happy to have him serve our school in this new way.

Today the kindergartners planted some lettuce seeds which will sprout in the coming weeks and then grow over the winter months. Hopefully we will have some fine organic lettuce ready for us to enjoy this spring.

Tomorrow is Picture Day!
