About Our Lunch Program
June 14, 2016
Dear O’Shea Community,
It’s hard to believe the school year is almost at an end. What an exciting year this has been! I want to express my gratitude in welcoming me this year to your school.
The WITS seasonal cooking labs at Anderson have been remarkable. I wanted to extend a special thank you to those teachers who took the time to capture these special moments on film. The images and slide shows you created are a testament to the program and truly capture the essence of our partnership.
The sustainable force at PS 452 and attention to our planet as a whole is simply inspiring! It was a pleasure to watch the Trash Troopers in action and effectively execute recycling to help stop global climate change. I look forward to collaborating on future project with the troop next fall. Keep up the great work!
The initiation of in-classroom demos at Computer School was a success. Using the science lab’s hydroponic system to grow basil and kale not only provided a lesson in science but an opportunity to explore nutrition, cooking and health. Looking forward to many more of these next fall.
Lastly, I want to mention the success of the Cinco de Mayo school wide fiesta!
Special WITS guest chef Anne Williams lent a hand in serving up mini tacos. I can safely say everyone enjoyed them!
Wishing you all a very happy and healthy summer break.
