Thank you Madison Area Master Gardeners Association for awarding Glendale School a 2019 grant to create classroom worm boxes! Your generous donation will allow us to compost our weekly snack extras to valuable "black gold" for our school garden. The following teachers have volunteered to be great "worm parents" throughout the school year, as well as "worm-sit" their classroom bins throughout the summer:

Sara Milewski, Lead Teacher: Sue Bernhagen, Clair Frees, Mia Hicks, Iris Hill, Cassie Hoover, Megan Laws, Jennifer Logan, Arlene Lukin, Colin Schmidt
