From the PTO: Silver Beach Summer Garden Care 2017
Thank you for helping our garden continue to grow and thrive throughout the summer – without your help, the hard work our students put in this spring would go neglected. Now, in fall, they can return to a well-tended garden that reflects the continuity of the growing season. As a Garden Angel, we ask that you:
• Water the garden regularly
• Weed as needed
• Re-sow crops when possible
• Weigh/record garden harvests
• Log garden activities, concerns or delights in your school’s garden journal
We appreciate your help and welcome you to share in the bounty of the garden by taking home some of the produce we’ve grown together.
Please sign up for one week at a time, Monday-Sunday. Our contact info in case you have any questions: info@commonthreadsfarm.org OR 360-927-1590 http://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040f4ca5aa2fa75-silver

WATCH D.O.G.S: Dads Of Great Students
WatchDOGS are fathers, uncles, grandfathers and other father-figures who volunteer for at least one full school day a year at Silver Beach. This is a great volunteering opportunity that provides positive male role models for our students, demonstrating by their presence and engagement that education is important and adding an extra set of eyes and ears to enhance our positive learning community. We are planning a big Pizza kick-off event at the start of next school year and hope you will consider joining and working with other great WatchDOGS. For more information and/or to join next year’s WatchDOGS group be sure to add your name to sign-up list at the volunteer desk in the office or email our School Counselor, Brian Gilmore (brian.gilmore@bellinghamschools.org).

Gift Certificates Available for Little Bugs Consignment: If you have a need for clothing assistance for your children, please contact our school counselor, Brian Gilmore, at 676-6470 ext.2328
