"Farm 2 School" activity in health class

Grade 6,7,8 students visited the orchard and garden behind the high school as part of a "Farm 2 School" activity in health class.  Mrs. Poliquin, Food Service Director, and Mrs. Knight, Health Teacher, explained the importance of eating fresh, local foods as part of a healthy lifestyle.

 Students had the opportunity to identify and taste fresh fruits and veggies that are ripe in the orchard and garden.

 Students will continue to learn about the nutritional value and cooking skills related to using local fruits and vegetables in health class.
