Have you signed up yet for the Root 4 Kids contest? Sponsored by Annie’s, it offers a chance for SES to win a garden, a Farm to School program or garden supplies–and in the process it promotes what is hopefully already your kid’s passion for growing their own fruits and vegetables.

We are now weighing in at No. 8, but we have 3 more weeks to capture the top spot and win. So please  take 5 minutes to register at root4kids.com, and be sure and plug in Sunnyside Environmental School where appropriate. Help spread the word to folks who share a stake in your child’s education:  post on Facebok, email relatives. Your PTSA is seizing every opportunity like this to win money/prizes that benefit the school and require little effort and no upfront costs. You might have participated in the Facebook Walk & Bike To School Challenge this fall, which we won and earned $5,000 for the school. Let’s see if we can win again!
