Saving our Planet: say YES to sustainability


Alert: SFC students have taken over and are running the school!

Ms. Joy’s 2nd Grade class daily coordinate a seamless composting program for our K-3rd grade lunch period. Ask your student what goes in the green, blue and black bins. Can you spot the intruder in this tasty worm buffet below?



Mark your calendars:

  • Every first Saturday of the month from  10 a.m. to 2 p.m. come join the party…the garden party. Share skills, snacks and smiles. There are jobs for all types and we NEED your help to make the garden grow and flourish.

    (on the TODO list: the scare crow needs an extreme makeover)
  • Wed, Jan 29th 9:10-9:50AM in the Cafeteria, Phoebe the Phoenix is coming to visit for an assembly and talk about what happens to our waste stream and how we can reduce our consumption, reuse what we have and recycle.

5th-8th graders are greening the campus and still need MORE scrap wood to build a house for our hawk and to fence in our poor trampled street gardens before we transplant in the cuttings students have been propagating.  IMG_5802

Don’t know your way around the garden??? No worries. Just ask to borrow one of our detailed, accurate student maps for a self-guided tour- 4th and 5th graders fill in their map and key, noting all key features for visitors to explore.
