Gardening and kids have been in the news a lot in the past few months. To this end we have developed the OEA or Outdoor Education Area for our school. SLS maintains a garden area on one of the church's vacant lots just east of the school.
We have 12 raised beds which are tended by our different classrooms. Mrs. Shaw had lots of plants in her bed but the sweet potatoes seemed to weather the summer heat the best. This week they dug up some wonderful tubers. Pre-K is planning to serve sweet potato fries for the school sometime soon.
