It's hard to believe that it is already the last week of September. With Fall officially beginning the Green team will be harvesting the vegetables that were planted in the Spring in the Northern Hills Community Association garden across the street from the school. Last year the green team was able to harvest 150 pounds of vegetables and this year they are hoping to exceed their record. All harvested vegetables will be donated to the Calgary Food Bank.

Another important reminder for parents and students is that Pizza Friday will start on September 29th.
