Herbs for Tea ~

As a schoolwide project this year, we are reading the book "3 Cups of Tea" by Greg Mortenson. We also commited to raise money for this organization to build a new school in Afghanistan by collecting "Pennies for Peace".

Fourth graders Lindsey, Sicily, Mary & Brooke show off their "Pennies for Peace" t-shirts, which can be purchased at the front office...while planting a few herbs.
In our school garden, we are growing a number of herbs that can be brewed for fresh tea.

~ lemon balm
~ pineapple mint
~ lemon thyme
~ sage
~ spearmint
~ rosemary
~ basil

Teachers...feel free to come collect a handful of herbs to brew yourself a cup of hot tea during your lunchbreak!
