Winter Health Reminders!

As more age groups have the opportunity to receive COVID vaccines, we ask everyone to remain vigilant in handwashing and proper mask-wearing during the school day to reduce the spread of all seasonal illnesses, including influenza and COVID. The change in weather and upcoming holidays will lead to more time indoors with family gatherings and celebrations, which we want our AGCS families to enjoy in good health! As always, please contact your school nurses regarding COVID exposure or cases within your household for guidance.

Our honey is ready!

The AGCS honey bees were busy this spring and summer pollinating tree blossoms and flowers and collecting nectar. They brought the pollen and nectar back to their hive and turned the nectar into marvelous honey! As you know, honey bees make and store honey in their hives to provide food for the winter when weather conditions prevent them from leaving their hive. Our bees must think it is going to be a long, cold winter because they stored more honey than they need to survive.

Through the hard work and dedication of our Beekeeping Team and High School Bee Academy Students, Avon Grove Charter School is thrilled to “bee” offering pure raw honey harvested from the AGCS Apiary. The honey is available for a donation of $10 per jar with a limit of 2 jars per AGCS Family.

Order forms will be accepted starting November 1st. Orders will be filled as they are received.

All donations benefit the AGCS Apiary. Thank you for your continued support.
