Making Salad for the Teacher's Appreciation Day luncheon
Today several 2nd and 3rd graders prepared salad for the Teachers' Appreciation Day lunch. They harvested some of the ingredients from our school garden, e.g. red and green oak leaf lettuce, sugar snap peas, carrots and nasturtiums. The rest of the ingredients were generously donated by the Pacific Palisades Gelson's store--lettuce, spinach, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, avocados, radishes and red cabbage. The children prepared the lemon and olive oil dressing, washed the ingredients, cut some of the ingredients with plastic knives (supervised by parent volunteers) and added combined the ingredients. Thanks to Kendall, Ava, Samantha, Odysseus, Sophie, Logan, Taylor, Laura, Kendall, Calvin, and several others. Thanks to Veronica, Beverly, Bridget, Amy, and Carolyn for helping the kids prepare the salad. Thanks also to Gelson's for the donations. We were happy that Neirith Parr, front desk manager, was able to join us, as well as folks from the Palisadian-Post.
