We are looking for some items to help with this. If you have old shirts, pants, boots, hats, or anything else that could be used to help create a scarecrow, please send it our way! We are also in search of hay or bags of leaves to be used for stuffing our creations. All scarecrows will be judged by our K-5 students.

6) Farm to School lunch on Monday is chicken ranch flatbread and a salad.  We are getting our greens from local greenhouse Lavenhop right here in Cambridge-Narrows. Culinary lunch on Tuesday is a ham & cheese sandwich, cookie, and fruit. Both meals are available to order using School Cash Online.
