Students at Lincoln Elementary received a special treat...fresh, local spinach!

AmeriCorps VISTA Farm to School Coordinator, Sara Reveile, helped organize this event with partners from Yavapai County Community Health Services (YCCHS) and Prescott Farmers Market (PFM). Juan and Keeton Aguiar harvested six pounds of spinach from their farm, Blooming Reed Farm in Paulden specifically for this special event.

Mrs. Reveile and a team of volunteers washed, chopped, dressed and served the spinach to nearly 300 students. While the kids ate lunch, Prescott Farmers Market Executive Director, Kathleen Yetman, shared photos of the couple and their farm and spoke about local agriculture. YCCHS Health Educator, Sharmel Jordan, shared simple recipe ideas and nutritional information.

Farm to School is a nation-wide movement to connect kids to food through school gardens, nutrition education and sourcing locally grown ingredients for school meals. Lincoln Elementary has participated in local produce taste tests since 2014 and has a thriving school garden. Farm to School taste tests are a well-loved tradition in the Prescott Unified School District and in schools across the nation.

For many families, school, work schedules and extracurricular activities can make it difficult to find time to eat together and some go days or weeks without sitting down as a family to share a meal. However, family meals are important and should be considered part of our daily requirements." --- From The Importance of Family Mealtime by Julie Penkalski, Teen Liaison for Hope Academy, a program of Family & Children’s Center

11/17/2020

After seeing an article on the evening news about a dad who was making student desks for distance learning, Prescott residents Judy and Mark Lauver approached PUSD's Volunteer Coordinator Debra Prieto about the concept for PUSD students. Working with our Distancing Learning Coordinator Rachel Chunglo and Family Resource Center Coordinator Kelly Mattox, families were asked about the distance Learning desk idea. As a result 24 students have received desks and are now enjoying a designated spot in their home where learning can happen uninterrupted by other homelife activities. Studies have shown that there is a mindset change that happens when students enter a regular school classroom that prompts the "time for learning". No doubt having a designated space for learning at home can mimic the mindset change. Thanks to the Lauver's and several helpful friends the desks were constructed and delivered to the PUSD District Office for pick up.

Big Thank You to Judy and Mark Lauver, Barry Wharam and Bill Von Rohr for thinking of our students during distance and hybrid learning.

In addition, our local Home Depot at Frontier Village donated the materials for the desks. We are very grateful to Rhys Jackson at Home Depot.

Here is the original article that sparked the Lauver's into action...
