School Garden Receives $500 Wellness Foundation Grant

Mrs. Calderale, Mr. Fiorretti and Mr. Wilkins recently attended a wellness conference hosted by the Wellness Foundation in Southampton.  During the conference there were presentations exhibiting the benefits of practicing and implementing mindfulness in the classroom, improving school lunches and developing a school garden.  All of these have been proven beneficial towards the overall well being of staff and students alike.
We are pleased to announce that Greenport School in conjunction with the Wellness Foundation acquired a grant for $500 that will be dedicated towards further developing our school garden.  The funding will be used towards the purchase of materials for creating a shaded area and other useful items for implementing the ideas shared at the conference and enabling the garden for use as an outdoor classroom.
