Youth Poetry Contest
Many students at North Star Elementary participated in the National Gardening Association’s youth poetry contest, sponsored by Countryside Garden Club. One of our member, Dr. Barbara Boyce coordinated a partnership with the North Star Elementary School. Students are holding certificates of award or certificates of participation.
Twenty-seven students participated in the 2019-20 year. We expect several of these students’ poems will go on to be judged at CAR-SGC and maybe even make it to the national stage for judging. All students received a certificate of participation or a certificate of award.
North Star Elementary students are planting kale and spinach seeds as part of Healthy Foods for Healthy Kids school vegetable garden program. Countryside Garden Club members help with washing the produce at the end of the season so that the whole school can enjoy a fresh and delicious garden salad.
