Wychwood Green Barn field trip

Last Spring, WMS partnered with White Squirrel Coffee (whitesquirrelcoffee.com) to raise money for The STOP Community Food Centre, a local organization that works to increase access to food in a manner that maintains dignity, builds health and community and challenges inequality. Every Friday, WMS parents purchase White Squirrel coffee and/or baked goods prepared by our students. The parents have a wonderful time chatting and sipping their coffee; it’s a great way to wind down the workweek.

We often discuss with the children the importance of eating healthy foods. They know good food is necessary to be healthy and strong. In learning The STOP’s role in our community, the children were sorry to learn that healthy foods cost a lot of money and not everyone can afford to eat as well as we do. They were pleased to hear that they are helping people to eat healthy by hosting Coffee Fridays and that the baked goods they’ve made for the parents has brought in money that they will give to The STOP so more people can eat healthy food.

Last Friday, Casa South took a field trip to the Wychwood Green Barn. We visited the Greenhouse and had a plant scavenger hunt, learned how to make a worm compost, and played in the playground.

We also brought our donation of $320. Thanks to all of the parents who participate in Coffee Friday. The children were so happy to know that they are helping people eat healthier foods.
