Graphic Packaging came to talk with Kindergarten and 1st grade about what they do and to also plant trees. Each child got to plant a tree in a biodegradable box to take home and plant. They also received a pencil and coloring book. Thank you Graphic Packaging for taking time out of your day to provide this wonderful experience!

First Grade concluded their Farm to Table learning by going on a field trip to Marcoot Jersey Creamery. At the farm, they visited the calf barn, the milking parlor, and the creamery. In the calf barn, they were able to pet the calves. At the milking parlor, they watched a cow get milked with the robotic milker and saw the tank the milk is stored in. In the creamery, they watched ice cream being made and scooped (the ice cream they were making today was for dogs), learned how cheese is made and saw the vat it is made in. At the conclusion of the trip, they sampled several kinds of cheese and a cup of vanilla ice cream. The cheeses and ice cream are made from the milk of the Jersey cows on the farm. Their favorite cheese was Gouda and they loved the ice cream.

1st Grade has been learning about Farm to Table through the school year. We are currently discussing dairy. Today they helped make homemade bread in the bread machine, shook whipping cream to make butter, and sampled their finished products. Everyone loved their bread and butter snack.
