Second grade participates in Agricultural Literacy week activities.

EverGreen students in grades kindergarten to second grade participated in Agricultural Literacy week activities. On Wednesday, March 20th, volunteer readers went to each classroom to read the book “Anywhere Farm” and completed activities with the students. Students were taught to explore the options they have to grow their own foods, i.e.: bucket, pail, front porch, windowsill, etc. demonstrating how easily anyone can their own food, not just farmers. This was made possible by the Wayne County 4-H program, Honesdale FFA, and Wayne/Pike Farm Bureau.

Service Dog visits EverGreen

The fourth-grade classes at EverGreen had the opportunity to meet Carbondale Area’s service dog after recently reading and learning about service dogs. Sansa, who works at Carbondale Elementary School, was at EverGreen on Wednesday with her one of handlers, Mrs. Vadella, who is an elementary school counselor. Mrs. Vadella and Sansa visited each fourth-grade classroom to talk with students about what service dogs do, the extensive training they go through before becoming a service dog, what makes services dogs unique, and students were able to see tasks that she does to help students while at work. Some tasks include deep pressure on an individual’s legs while they are sitting on a chair or the floor, going ‘place’ which allows Sansa to sit between an individual’s legs, or ‘visit’ when places Sansa’s head on a person’s lap allowing her to be pet. The students were extremely knowledgeable of the topic and asked great questions that Mrs. Vadella was able to answer and provide an in-person example. EverGreen Elementary would like to thank Carbondale Area Superintendent Mrs. Sayre and Elementary Principal Ms. Duffy for allowing Mrs. Vadella and Sansa to visit!
