This spring, the grade 2s & 3s planted potatoes with Mrs. Chapnick in our garden beds. Now in grade 3 & 4, the children helped Mrs. Chapnick dig and harvest the potatoes. We celebrated with Hot Potato Day on Friday, October 9th. Each child in the school washed potato and wrapped a potato for baking. Our chefs, Mr. Kustiak and Mr. Ostapchuk baked the potatoes and prepared the sour cream, onions and cheese for us with Mrs. Chapnick. Right before lunch, the potatoes arrived ready to enjoy. They were delicious! We harvested almost 200 potatoes this fall. After our hot potato feast, we had leftover potatoes. These potatoes are being donated to Evergreen Basic Needs for families in our community to enjoy!
A special thank you to Mrs. Chapnick, Mr. Ostapchuk and Mr. Kustiak for making Hot Potato Day such a success!
