In 2019 the PTO began sponsoring a partnership with Common Threads and built our very own Skyline Garden! The mission of Common Threads is to connect kids to healthy food in the garden, in the kitchen, and at the table. We want kids to grow up making food choices that are good for their bodies, their communities, and the environment. As part of their school-based program, all of our Skyline students get to participate in gardening and cooking lessons; these lessons are super fun and the kids love them! Additionally, teachers have the option to use the garden as an additional learning space and teaching tool.
Our Common Threads partnership is mostly on hold during the 2020-2021 school year, but we are still maintaining the garden. If you are interested in helping in any way, please contact Esther at firstname.lastname@example.org.
