5. Friday, September 29 – Miller Farms Field Trip
    Get your boot and gloves ready, because on this day we all get to be farmers and pick our own vegetables!  All of our MELC students (and our Kindergarten ones, too!) are invited to joins us at Miller Farms in Platteville, CO.  All families will be in charge of their own transportation, and each child will need to have at least 1 adult chaperone with them the whole time.  The cost will be $8.00/person, and we will all be put on a trailer and wheeled around to different crops to pick and choose from so many yummy vegetables.  Thinking ahead – remember to bring plenty of reusable grocery bags, sunscreen, hats, and water.  More information, as well as permission forms, will be coming home in about 2 weeks.
6.  Saturday, September 30 – Green and Gold 5K
    The race starts at 9am, and afterwards there will be fun activities, vendor booths set up, and the best dj in the world (I have to say that, he’s my hubs :) playing music.  Register soon… or plan on coming after the race!
Spirit Wear orders are also due on September 8, and there are items available in smaller sizes for our littles in the MELC.  It’s so cute when they match!
Thank you all for being a part of our Gethsemane Family!  You are such a blessing to us.:)
