BrightBytes & WCCUSD: Help Madera Make the Best Technology Decisions

brightbytes_logo

During the 2014‐15 school year, our district will be partnering with BrightBytes, an educational software company, so that we can learn more about our school’s technology use for student learning. Our goal is to gather baseline and continuous data on technology access and skills, and on our district’s technology environment, in order to understand the connection between technology use and student achievement.

To gain these insights, we must provide BrightBytes with a complete picture of technology use at school and at home within our district. We will be asking students, teachers, and parents to participate in a project to help us gather this data.

Madera Farmers Market- This Friday!

 

IMG_20140425_135047_485Hello all,

I just wanted to remind you that we are running a small scale farmers market this Friday, September 26th from 2:45 till 3:30. Our 6th graders will have a table in the garden and we will have two mobile markets (i.e. produce in wheelbarrows) that will be at the front and back of the school.

We will be selling tomatoes, zucchini, pumpkins, kale, lettuce, indian corn, eggs, as well as a few other surprises.

Prices will be between $3-$5, so bring your wallets and a reusable bag.

We hope to see you there!  If you have any questions or concerns, please email me directly.

Thanks,

Ms. Molly, school garden coordinator

I Go For Farmigo!

Farmigo samples at Back-to-School Night

Hello all,
This is Ms. Molly from the garden.  If you’ve been looking at the Farmigo flier you got in the blue folder a little while back, and you have been meaning to sign up for weekly produce deliveries.  Now is the time!

If you’ve never heard of Farmigo before, it is a mix between a food coop and a csa.  You can order whatever you want every week from their menu of choices, and then you pick up your order on Wednesdays between 1:50 and 5:00 at the bottom of the garden.  When we make $500 or more total sales for a week, we get 10% back.  But this next week, we get 20% back.  That’s why now is the time- you need to place your order by tomorrow, Sept. 14th!

So, click on the link below to scope out Madera’s Farmigo site:

farmigo.com/maderaelementary

And use this coupon code to get $10 off any order of $20 or more:

Thanks and happy eating,
Ms. Molly
