Summer Garden Opportunity

Conestoga Diggers’ Discovery Garden: Summer Garden Opportunity

Would you like to help tend the school garden for one week during the summer? Check out the link to the Sign Up Genius below and consider helping. Basically, you need to visit the garden one or two times during your chosen week to complete a list of basic tasks such as weeding, watering and harvesting some of the vegetables in the raised beds. A list of tasks/instructions will be posted in the shed.   This is a great time for families to visit and enjoy the garden together over the summer!  If you would like more information before signing up, contact Beth Horst at or 871-1798.

D.E.A.R. fun

Drop Everything And Read was the theme yesterday at 2:30, as the entire school did just that. The PTO generously purchased a book for every student and they had fun with this activity. We plan to compile the pictures from the DEAR time for your enjoyment. Here are just a few.

Sixth Grade Carnival

As part of sixth graders’ “Pay it Forward Project”, they are hosting a carnival of sorts at recess to raise money and awareness for Lancaster County’s Children’s Alliance. Their carnival will take place on June 2 and June 3. We would like to encourage students to bring loose change (pennies, nickles & dimes) to participate in carnival activities.

There will be plenty of activities and games and prizes will be awarded to the kids who accomplish the game. Doesn’t “Balloon Destruction” or “H2O Launcher” sound fun???  Check out “Bucketball” or “Net Crashers” if you have time. Please consider allowing your students to have some extra change with them on Monday and Tuesday.

Thank you from Mr. Mattern & Mr. Schettler
