Join us for our third Food Truck Fiesta fundraiser on the front lawn of Short Avenue Elementary! This March we are proud to be hosting Peaches’ Smokehouse & Southern Kitchen, Joe’s Pizza Truck, Son Of A Bun & Sweet E’s “the mini bake shop”! 5-8pm. Let’s celebrate the extra hour of sun and picnic outside with classmates, neighbors and friends. Why not bring a blanket, some lawn chairs and a big appetite?
Our Green Angels have been hard at work on a new recycled art project What is love? Look for the hearts, made from recycled wood, hanging on our Tree of Love in the kinder courtyard. Not only are the sweet messages displayed captivating works of art in themselves, they extend their lessons, reminding and motivating students and staff not yet actively involved with Green Angels, to become engaged in the larger context of environmentalism and sustainability.
The Green Angels are a group of caring parents, grand-parents, community friends and students dedicated to giving special time to Short Avenue Elementary school by beautifying, recycling, creating, socializing, sharing and learning about earth. Thank you to our wonderful Green Angels Founder and Director, Sandrine Klein, for her beautiful vision and special gifts in spreading love throughout our campus.
