Potato Planting

I hope your child's sticker, which read, "I planted a potato today, ask me how," prompted some good conversation about our potato planting activity on Thursday. UMS and the Colchester Food Shelf have formed another partnership in addition to our food drives--planting potatoes for Tuberville, an organization which grows potatoes for those in need. There is now a potato patch behind the new Colchester Food Shelf (next to our school) and the first graders were the first to plant the potatoes that will help provide food for those in need come fall harvest time. And, when that harvest time comes around, our students will be second graders and they will help harvest the potatoes. What a great way to be involved in helping our community! Great work, 1st graders!
