Garden Work Parties and Watercolor Workshops

June 18, 2010

Our first Lewis Garden Work Party / Watercolor Workshop was held on Thursday, June 17. Eight parents came out to help weed our garden beds. During the work party they focused on cleaning up and planting the east side garden bed outside of Mrs. Keefer and Ms. Jen’s classrooms

We have another date scheduled for next Wednesday, June 23rd from 10 am-12 pm. . Meet us first in the Lewis Garden by the new cob bench, we will gather tools and supplies, and head out to the garden together. Next Wednesday we will be working in the Outdoor Center area around the outdoor classroom and new cob bench. Individuals, families and kids all welcome!

Title: Charlotte’s Web Author: E.B. White Staff Member: Mr. Colvin

Multnomah Country Library Link

"Before the movie, before the cartoon, was the book. The book and I are about the same age, having both arrived in the early 1950s. I was in fourth grade in Mrs. Stansell's class in Gold Beach, Oregon and she read several novels during the year, but the one that hooked me was Charlotte's Web. I have read it to every class I have ever taught since I started teaching. Plus I read it to my own two kids when they were around 9 or 10.
