Schools & the market

Students & the market go together like peas and carrots.

Last week the third graders at Eugene Field walked over for their annual field trip to the market. You can see more photos of the trip at:

Today I visited Webster and spoke to the 1st and 2nd graders about winter squash, scarecrows and harvest. On October 16th, the Webster scarecrows visit the market and you'll get to vote for your favorite. Also, on October 16th Parents as Teachers participants come to the market to paint pumpkins (there will also be free streetcar rides between noon and 2).
