Pershing has the opportunity to revitalize its gardens and grow a new program to benefit students. Recipe for Success has offered to partner with Pershing and create a new school affiliate. We are presently looking for 2 community adult volunteers to step up for an online training program with Recipe for Success to help lead the program. In order to qualify you need to care about students, the earth and nutrition/health. No prior gardening or cooking experience necessary. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org by May 10th.
Recipe for Success Foundation was launched in 2005 by Gracie & Bob Cavnar to lead the way in combating childhood obesity by changing the way children understand, appreciate and eat their food and by helping the community provide healthier diets for our kids. In just a few years, the hands-on curriculum grew to the largest outreach of its kind in the nation, empowering over 4,000 children each and every month with our evidence-based, signature Seed-to-Plate Nutrition Education™. Other initiatives to teach, empower and inspire healthy eating, like the VegOut! Challenge, Farmers MarKIDS, Hope Farms and Eat It! Food Adventures, promote a culture where nutritious food is shared, appreciated and celebrated in Houston and nationwide.
Ultimate Frisbee Camp
Ultimate Frisbee camp will be on the Pershing baseball field Monday through Thursday June 4th – June 27th from 8:30-10:00 (AM). Ultimate Frisbee is a combination of Soccer and Football. Ultimate is a team-based sport played with a Frisbee. The goal is to pass from player to player until one team has a “friendly” catch the Frisbee in their designated goal. Ultimate Frisbee is an endurance based sport, and like soccer, non-contact. For full details please check out my website: https://sites.google.com/site/tennisandmath/ultimate-frisbee
Chess Camp will be in my classroom (136) at Pershing Monday through Thursday June 4th – June 27th from 11:30-1:00. Pickup and drop off will be in the teacher parking lot off Stella Link (across from the fire station). Anyone can play chess, and everyone can have fun doing so. If you are new to the game, you will have a great time learning while making new friends. If you are a seasoned player, you will be challenged in a unique way every day.
