Connecting Kids to Healthy Food

Principal’s Blog

Though our Kulshan Garden is heading into hibernation, the work of Common Threads and our teachers is shifting into the cooking mode.  We are lucky to have Marit Olson, our AmeriCorp Food Educator in our building to connect with teachers and students.  She shows us how the food we grew can now become the food we eat!  This is such a fun and exciting connection to make with kids.

Our district is a national leader in their work around school gardens, food educators, locally made school meals, and nutritional/ health leaders.  The research is clear: students who have access to healthy food have the nutrients they need to think, learn, collaborate, and grow.  If you would like to be a part of this healthy food movement, we’d love to have parents and volunteers join us for cooking in the classrooms. Let me know if you’re interested in joining!  We also would love to hear your feedback about our food, our cooking in the classroom programs, and our Kulshan Garden.  Tell us what your student thinks about our garden-to-table strategies.
