The beautiful thing about winter in North Carolina is that we are still growing and harvesting from our outdoor Grove garden!
Brocolli, califlower, brussel sprouts, and a variety of lettuce are all surviving the lower temperatures of winter…and we love it!
Happy winter everyone!!
This Friday, from 3:00pm to 5:30pm The Grove School of Cary will be having a silent art auction at our Night of Giving! Students have been working hard on several collaborative art pieces and are excited to have them displayed…and purchased! All proceeds from the art auction will go towards outdoor playground equipment. We hope to see you there!!!
A few weeks ago The Grove School of Plano participated in its first park clean up event. Everyone gathered at Russell Creek Park to clean up the playground and pond area of the park. The children enjoyed walking along the nature trails and exploring the wooded areas with each other. As we were cleaning the park a couple of teachers found a trapped snake that was caught in netting. We were able to get the snake rescued with the help of Plano animal control. A huge Thank you to everyone that volunteered their time in helping keep Plano beautiful.
December 21st from 3pm-6pm, The Grove School of Cary will be hosting our annual Night of Giving. This year we will be collecting various materials to donate to The Comfort Project:
The Comfort Project is a non-profit in North Carolina helping children and their families in hospitals find comfort. So save the date and please join us December 21st as we celebrate this holiday season by giving to others!
What fun we had at the Cary Christmas Parade this past weekend! It was a beautiful day and we saw lots of familiar faces in the crowd! Thank you to all our Grove families that came out to support us!
The Grove School Team, parents and students had a lot of fun at the annual Apex Christmas Parade!
They handed out pencils and other goodies, that were greatly appreciated by all the children.
The biggest excitement was produced by the “howling reindeers”.
The Grove School is participating in the Cary Gifting Tree Project this year. This project is a Tree Decorating Contest with a charitable twist in Downtown Cary where our school had the opportunity to decorate a tree last Friday. We thought this was an exciting way to contribute to the community while displaying the children’s masterpieces! Lorrie, Deedra, and I went on Friday to decorate our tree with all of the items that the children made last week. We had some very creative items to place on our tree, from bells made out of fruit cups and lids, stars made from sticks, and ornaments made from jar lids. It also glows at night with the solar powered lights that we put on!
Our tree will be on display during the whole month of December. From now until December 8th you can visit our tree and vote for your favorite. Hopefully you will vote for ours!! : )
The steps to vote are below:
Our tree is located on Academy St. in front of the Cary Library.
There is a jar with little paper trees to write our #4 on them.
Take your paper tree with the #4 on it to the Holly Daze Shoppe Located on E. Chatham St (down Academy St., make a right onto E. Chatham) and it is near the corner.
The town will be voting on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place with the public voting for People’s Choice. If we win People’s Choice we will be able to make a donation to the Charity of our Choice!!
A great time to locate our tree and vote is on Saturday at the Cary Parade. The Grove School will be walking in that parade as well. All families are welcome to join in walking with us! I will send out additional information on the parade meeting time and place. Please let me know if you have any questions about the Gifting Tree Project or the parade!
The food that we collected during our Feast of Thanks food drive fed 12 families this year! Thank you all for your generous donations!!
The Grove School of Cary had a very successful candy drive supporting the Duke Children’s Healthy Lifestyles Program.
The Grove School provided a basket at our front desk for parents who were looking for an alternative to their children consuming excessive amounts of candy for the holidays. Donated candy was sent as a way to send thanks, encouragement, and sweets to our troops overseas.
Thank you to everyone who donated to support our troops while keeping our children healthy!
What a wonderful turn out we had for our annual Grove School Feast of Thanks!! It was great to see all of our families enjoying food (so much food!) as well as one another. It was relaxing and joyous…just how a family meal should be! A big thank you to everyone who came, and have a happy and safe holiday weekend!!
