Salt & Straw is inviting all Abernethy students to help them invent their newest flavors! Each child can create a flavor and Salt & Straw will select three from Abernethy to make in their kitchen and sell at the Division Street location. The winning flavor (based on customer votes) will be featured at all Salt & Straw locations. A portion of the sales of that flavor will be donated back to Abernethy! Help you child fill out this form to enter.
Parents, learn more from Salt & Straw owners Tyler & Kim about why they support education!
Since you’re all wonderful supporters of our Abernethy community, and fans of the SKG program, I want to invite you to join in our next SKG meeting, Tuesday Feb 7 at 6:30pm.
We plan to discuss the upcoming garden cleanup and the Earth Day event, check in with Julie Welch and Growing Gardens about the daytime program, and start thinking about volunteer opportunities for next year.
Please RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org for location. There will be refreshments and light snacks, but feel free to bring something to share.
We’d love to see you there. Please reply if you’re interested in joining us!
