Our school is looking forward to participating in the 2012 Kids’ Localvore Challenge from Monday, October 8th to Friday, October 15th. The Kids’ Localvore Challenge is an opportunity for students (and adults) to take part in learning activities and experiences that highlight the value of food grown and raised in Vermont and nearby states.
Participation in this challenge will be optional, though we hope you will choose to take part! The Localvore Challenge will work similarly to the March Reading challenge. Participants will set their own goals, keep track of what local foods they eat, and turn their contracts in to their schools at the end, to be entered in a drawing for prizes. Information has been sent home with your child. Contact Emily Bullock, your classroom teacher or our Farm to School Program Manager, Katherine_Gillespie@wsesu.org, for more information.
We will extend the 5 day challenge until Monday, October 15 (due to the holiday). Please turn in all forms by October 15 to be entered in to the drawing. Feel free to call us with any questions. Look for our upcoming news of the week and future Farm to School events.
Wishing everyone lots of fun with local food and healthy eating!
Thank you for your support of our special programs.
