QEA-Bulletin 28 Sept 2018

Bonjour QEA Families


Garden Update: All classes will be working in the QEA garden this year: Division 1 with Mme Susie and Mme Teresa and Divisions 2 – 4 primarily with M. Curtis. The activities included in the next few weeks are: harvesting kale to make kale chips and harvesting and drying seeds for planting next year. We are continuing to harvest apples from the trees and Divisions 1-3 will be making apple sauce with the apples – Division 4 made apple sauce last week.


Following the harvest, we will be planting garlic and then the majority of the work will be preparing the beds for winter – we will be planting Winter Rye Grass (to be dug in the in the Spring for fertilization) as well as mulching and covering the beds.


QEA is partnering with both Fresh Roots and Spuds in Tubs this year. For the potatoes, we will be keeping our potatoes in the library where all classes will participate in tending the plants through the winter and then share in the planting in the spring. Fresh Roots is working with M Curtis to facilitate workshops throughout the school year in the QEA garden for all divisions.


Please look for a call for parent volunteers in the upcoming weeks. We will need parents to help in each division and are also hoping to start a Club jardin either at lunch or after school – details about dates and times to follow.


Here comes the rain again…! As the fall weather returns next week, just a reminder to parents that QEA is an all-weather school. Whatever the weather, students are outside at recess and lunch every day and during Action School most days. Please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately for the weather conditions.
