Community Schools 101

United Way hosted the first Community School 101 educational session. This was a huge success, bringing 80 participants from government, health, school districts, community based organizations and volunteers together for an opportunity to learn, share and create awareness of the Community School Strategy to support whole child health and academic success in learning. Sacajawea Community School in Caldwell is working on building a neighborhood school garden in collaboration with Canyon Hill Church. The garden will serve the families and neighbors of Sacajawea with healthy food options. The school garden will be located at Canyon Hill Church, who has donated space for the garden to grow and expand to meet future food needs. A garden committee meets regularly, and is eager for a kick-off celebration this spring to promote, welcome and engage neighbors to the garden.
