Tomato Sauce Day: On Monday, Sept. 26th during their lunch periods, our children will have a taste of some delicious tomato sauce with bread (gluten free bread will also be available) for dipping. They can also taste and smell the various herbs that were grown this summer in our WS organic garden. We need volunteers to bring in a pot of sauce. Make your own recipe or use our tomato sauce recipe attached. The kids love tomato sauce day so please contact Suzi Berg if you are able to bring in a pot of delicious sauce for the kids to enjoy.
