School Gardens Feed Laramie Families

Gardens located at Albany County schools are typically used to teach students about how plants grow. Classes and garden clubs learn about the life cycle of plants, how plants provide food, and the work needed to maintain a thriving garden. When schools were abruptly closed last spring these learning opportunities were no longer available. Instead, our school gardens were repurposed into food producers for Albany County Families.

Ms. Trish Penny from the Laramie River Conservation District along with volunteers prepared, planted, watered, weeded, and harvested the different school gardens over the summer.  Harvested vegetables were distributed to families when they picked up Grab-N-Go meals from the school district in August.

An amazing amount of produce was produced! This included:

  • 218 pounds of carrots
  • 101 pound of green beans
  • 14 pounds of tri-colored beans
  • 56 pounds of red beets
  • 7 pounds of radish
  • 47 pounds of cucumbers
  • 29 pounds of purple onions
  • 117 pounds of white onions
  • 19.5 pounds of turnips
  • 5 pounds of tomatoes

Leafy vegetables:

  • 83 bags of green leaf lettuce
  • 20 bags of Swiss Chard
  • 28 bags of kale
  • 12 bags of collard greens
  • 12 bags of turnip greens
  • 6 bags of beet greens
  • 23 bags of spinach

The Beitel garden was part of this effort! Thank you to Ms. Penny, Mrs. Greenwald, and the many volunteers who helped to feed families this summer!

Move Into Your Desk Event Tuesday AFTERNOON, August 25

Dear Beitel Families:
Bulldogs always want to get a head start on learning! We'll be holding a socially-distanced Move Into Your Desk event next Tuesday afternoon from 3:00 until 6:00. In order to limit the number of people at any one time we've scheduled families by last name. If you have multiple last names in your family pick one and go with that. If you can't make it during an assigned time, the final time slot is available to anyone. Our schedule looks like this:
  • Tuesday, August 25th: 3:00 to 6:00- Move Into Your Desk Event by Family Name:

    • 3:00 to 3:45: A to F

    • 3:45 to 4:30: G to M

    • 4:30 to 5:15- N to Z

    • 5:15 to 6:00- Everyone Else

We'll be following our ACSD1 reopening guidelines during this event. That means:
  • Masks will be required on campus
  • Please remember social distancing guidelines including six feet between families and other human beings.
  • Common areas of the building are not open to the public during this event. Please meet your child's teacher at the outside door of their classroom.
  • One family at a time!
  • *In most cases only students will be allowed into their classroom to move in.
    • *KG families are the exception to this. Families may enter the classroom with their student. 
Class lists will be finalized and posted by the end of this week. We look forward to seeing your masked face next Tuesday!
