Good evening! This is Dr. Moore-Lawrence, proud principal of Bethesda Elementary School, with the Principal’s Weekly Spotlight. Please listen to the following reminders about important things happening at Bethesda the week of March 11th.

 

Welcoming all parents to harvest our school garden!  Please join us for Bethesda's First Garden Harvest Day on March 20th from 9 to 11.  We will harvest what is in the garden for all participating families to take home!  We will harvest arugula, kale, mustard greens, broccoli, and chard.  A grocery bag to fill with produce will be provided to each family.  Salad dressing recipes tested by third grade classes will be provided too!  If you have questions, contact our gardening expert at annie.kersting@foodcorps.org.
