Melaleuca Students Writing

The children at Melaleuca Elementary prepared and then tasted their new dish :  Yogurt Delight.

The writing impresses and the healthy snack was a hit.    Let’s see how many of the children prepare it at home now.  

A Dog with a Sombrero

The El Sol Read a Recipe children had a wonderful session last week.   They read a bilingual book, El Perro con Sombrero, and enjoyed a healthy snack:   organic banana popsicles with almond butter and unsweetened coconut flakes.   What’s not to like?   

Read a Recipe at El Sol, 2018

We’re up and running again at El Sol.    The spring term began last week and the first session was a big hit!    The children donned their personalized chef hats and wore them as they prepared their healthy snack.   They are sure to make the sweet pizza at home (flatbread topped with fruit slices).    That gave them the energy to write in their journals.     We are working with a great team at El Sol!

It’s Raining Flowers in Florida

El Sol’s Farmer’s Market was more beautiful than ever last weekend.    The sapphire showers were a-blooming and the garden a-thriving.    Happily,  the cooler temperatures did no harm to the plants.
