After Spring Break, the Garden Club had more than 40 students sign up. As a result, the club is divided into two groups and are held on Mondays and Wednesdays at lunchtime, just after the lunch bell.
So far, students have weeded 8 out of 14 garden boxes in front of the school and they have planted squash, beans, potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuce. During rainy days, there are indoor activities – students painted garden rock, and planted tomatoes and pumpkins seeds as well as made garden markers. See below for photos of their growing plants.
This club will also allow students to harvest and eat what they help grow. The club is sponsored by Ms. Janice Newkirk, Ms. Kim Clark and Ms. Annette Yang (PAC Garden Coordinator). If you are interested in helping with the Student Garden Club, please contact us.
Thank you to all the parents, students and alumni volunteers helping with the Lyndhurst Garden Sale last Saturday. The PAC would also like to thank the following businesses for their generous donations:
Cedar Rim Nursery
Southwest Garden Supplies.
With the great success we had this year, we will be hosting another garden sale next year however we cannot do it without your help. We need pots & plant donations as well as volunteers to help dig, pot and store plants over the winter, and to help start seedlings indoors in February. If you can help with next year’s garden sale, please contact us.
Show your school spirit by ordering shirts, sweatshirts, sweatpants, etc all with the Lyndhurst logo printed on them. Samples are available outside the office. Online orders will be accepted until December 3rd, 2017. The expected delivery date is 3-4 weeks from the end of the sale, subject to change if the sale is extended. All purchases are final, no refunds nor exchanges.
Appetizers in the Atrium, 6:00-7:00 pm, followed by the keynote speaker Kim Leifso, 7:00-8:30 pm. Her presentation Safer Schools Together will discuss mental health and child anxiety in the school setting. As only 4 executives and 1 school administrator per school may attend, please speak with a PAC executive or Ms Clark prior to registering on the DPAC website.
