Flynn School Garden - Can you Help?

Due to COVID, Flynn School’s traditional Day in the Dirt, held each May, will have to be a staff driven event. But don’t worry, you can still be part of the growing Flynn School Gardening Community. We would love to have help with our garden over the summer. We are looking for families to "adopt-the-garden" for a week, starting the week after school gets out until the kids return next year. You can sign up online for a week that works best for your family. “Adopting the garden” would involve weeding, watering, and possibly harvesting any veggies that are ripe. All garden tools, supplies and instructions will be supplied to you, along with the contact information of Flynn garden staff member, in case you have any questions.

If you are interested and available to help in the garden for a week this summer, please sign up using this link, and our Flynn Garden Committee will reach out with further instructions as we get closer to summer. And thanks again to our Flynn families for your ongoing support and help with our garden! We all look forward to a harvest celebration next fall.

P.S. Adopting the garden qualifies as City Market Member Work - if you are already a City Market Member Worker, please reach out to Allison Tinson to log your hours for your week in the garden this summer!

Book Fair and Hot Dog Dinner: A Huge Success

Thank you to all of the families and staff volunteers who helped make our book fair and hot dog dinner a success. We had over 100 families join us over 3 nights to peruse books and eat hot dogs. Our ever smiling staff volunteers helped keep the event COVID safe.

Artist in Residence

During Art, Fifth Graders had fun creating clay pieces with our Artist in Residence, Alissa Faber. The clay tiles are connected to 5th grade watershed studies in science. When the tiles are complete, they will be installed on a panel in the outdoor classroom! This work is part of an Artist in Schools grant Mrs. Plumer received for the 2020 - 2021 school year.

Vermont Youth Dancers Presents

As You Are, The Story of Belle and the Beast, a dance theatre production of the classic fairy tale. A selfish young prince and his castle staff fall under a spell of a mysterious enchantress, who turns him into a frightful beast, until he can learn to love and be loved in return. Belle may be their only hope, as she takes her mother’s place as prisoner at the castle. But time is running out… Will the spell be broken? This wonderful story of community, sacrifice and identity is told by VYD through exciting hip hop and poignant lyrical choreography, along with stunning sets, lighting and costumes. Do not miss this unique performance – the choreography, song lyrics, and the acting and emotion the dancers put on the stage is something unusual and beautiful!

Please help support VYD as they provide mentoring, leadership, and performance opportunities for young community members and have given back thousands of dollars in support of other community organizations.

VYD brings this show to Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center in Stowe with a small live audience, and there are still UNLIMITED live stream tickets available for the two shows on Sunday, May 30th at 12:30 and 6:30 p.m..
