Our Master School Gardeners are bringing a new in-school "field trip" to Chesnut on Friday, April 25th. All Chesnut classes will have a chance to tour the G.A.B.I.E. agricultural interactive bus to learn about Georgia's main crops, how honey is made, and careers in agriculture. Students may also bring in money to purchase souvenirs at the G.A.B.I.E. store.
Parents, please send in $5 cash per child by April 18th, in an envelope marked "GABIE Bus."
This spring, we have had wonderful news that Chesnut has won TWO separate grants, each for $2,000, to help us keep the momentum going on Wellness and Health efforts at the school. Members of our Wellness Action Team have taken the lead in pursuing these awards to expand Chesnut's Gardening, Nutrition and Increased Movement programs (details here).
