Think Spring! Think Gardening!

The Down To Earth Community Garden is growing! Yes, we have room for expansion and would like to welcome any interested teachers, staff or student families to participate in the garden. There is a small fee to rent a plot (3 sizes available). The gardener provides their own seeds or plants and cultivates their bed all season long. At the end of the season each gardener is responsible for cleaning up their bed. Water, compost, tools, education, collaboration and support are provided. It’s a great way to eat fresh vegetables all summer long, save money, get exercise and fresh air, meet new families and beautify the City School landscape.

If you would like to learn more or know of anyone interested please email Holly at or call 524.2011. The season kick-off meeting is April 1st.

City School Community
I've been asked to help in the search for an assistant coach for the
Girls On Track Program here at City School. It's a great program with a
great head coach, Linda Pacheco, but the program requires an
assistant coach. Linda has the know how but needs help on Monday and
Wednesday after school if the program is to fly. If you are interested
please contact me at school and I will let her know. Thanks. Steve Denny
