Fabulous Fourth Grade

The week before Spring Break, the 4th grade harvested lettuce that has been growing in their growing tower and had a Salad Party! Students volunteered to bring in toppings and dressings. Almost everyone tried something new. It was a huge success. Thanks to all the families that helped supply the fixings!

We won't have time to grow more lettuce, but Mr. Widolff's tower has 5 cucumbers that we will try toward the end of the year.
