Feasting on Their Own Raised Food


Fourth grader Khalif Nashid enjoys the salad he helped grow and harvest. After the classes harvested the lettuce, they weighed what they picked and then graphed their class totals.


Parent volunteers Becky Waitt and Shawn Bloom help to serve the nearly 900 participants in the annual Thanksgiving tradition.

For the third year, Hollin Meadows Science & Math Focus students enjoyed a Thanksgiving lunch from the school’s classroom gardens. The feast includes a salad made with lettuce, which was planted and harvested by the students. Parent volunteers served the school-grown salads and traditional Thanksgiving lunch with all the "fixin’s" to nearly 900 students, family and friends.
