A Taste of Fall at the Farmers Market
Today, students in grades PreK through 8th were treated to our annual Farmers Market. Showcased were fall vegetables such as peppers, fresh corn, potatoes, squash, onions, and kale and the harvest fruit of juicy apples. After picking two vegetables and an apple of their choice, each student enjoyed a cup of apple cider while discussing what fun events the fall will bring.
Thank you to the HSA for their hard work and for hosting this wonderful event!

Social Outreach Halloween Costume Drive
Have Halloween costumes that no longer fit your little superheroes, ghosts, and wizards?

Donations will be accepted through Wednesday, October 18 in the collection bin in the SRLA foyer:
  • New or gently-used costumes for children ages 0-14 (nothing stained or torn, please!)
  • Halloween masks
