Getting Ready to Start School

Well, the weather has turned. It's much cooler lately than it has been and the days are getting shorter, so that means school must be right around the corner. Way back in June it seemed like summer would be so long...I could get so much done...and I did! Two weddings, a family reunion and lots of visiting with friends and family; plus the time to read many great books and work outside in the sunshine. It was a wonderful summer!

With just two weeks to go before staff begin our work week, I visited the school yesterday and was able to participate in a discussion out in the school garden. Here is a blog featuring the work of
the AmeriCorps Farm-to-School volunteers and our fabulous local master gardeners at Helping Hands Garden. They keep so busy with the garden that the posts don't appear that often, but it goes back to 2007 when the garden was first started through the 4-H Afterschool program. That blog was my first attempt at documenting a project through blogging. I've since turned it over to those currently supervising the project, but it's still fun to check in to see how they are coming along.

I also got a chance to spend some time in the library office sorting and cleaning. The custodial staff is doing an incredible job of getting the building in shape for the start of school. I am excited to see the new space in the library media center all walled off and ready for classes.

Enjoy these last weeks of summer. See you in the hallways soon!
