New Albany Elementary School students are learning about what it means to be part of a neighborhood.
Pre-K students at New Albany Elementary School are collecting non-perishable food items to help students and families in need. The food drive is part of teaching young students the importance of helping others in the community. Pre-K teachers are Donna Graham, Koni Knox and Amy Wallace.
On Friday, August 25, first grade students at New Albany Elementary School invited local gardener Kelly Coltharp to share how she grows vegetables and participates in the local Farmers’ Market. Coltharp shared a PowerPoint that showed how food goes from a garden to the farmers market. She also shared pictures and information about the local Biscuits and Jam Farmers Market. The story of the week for the first graders was “Farmer’s Market” and the focus question was “What can we see around our neighborhood?”
