The Village School is proud to announce that it is the recipient of the Golden Carrot Award, from the Physicians Committee for Responsbile Medicine. The Golden Carrot Awards, established in 2004, recognize food service teams doing exceptional work to improve the healthfulness of school lunches. The Physicians Committee looks for programs that encourage students to eat more fresh fruits, vegetables, and plant-based entrées for improved health and disease prevention. The school received a check for $2015 that will be used to help build the kitchen at our new school, and helps us launch our fundraising efforts to raise the $120,000 needed!

Summer Grass Mowing:
The Village School needs your help over the next few months to maintain the grass. The school districts mows the big fields, but it is our responsibility to cut the grass immediately around the school. The regular cutting takes just under 3 hours, and if two or more people take it on, it’s a lot less. The cutting needs to happen once every two weeks. We have a mower and a 6hp wheel mounted weed whacker. If you can help, please contact the office or visit: Click Here. Thanks so much!!!
