Grants for our Garden! Tahanto Regional Middle/High School has been selected to receive a 2014 Lowe's Toolbox for Education grant in the amount of $4500 for our garden project. The grant is provided by the Lowe's Charitable and Educational Foundation. Before the holidays, Tahanto also received a $500 grant from MA Agriculture in the Classroom. These two grants will support the work of our students and teachers in expanding the garden as a learning environment and to grow fresh produce for our lunch program.

Boylston Fourth Graders Rock the Invention Convention! - Speaking of S.T.E.M., the fourth graders at Boylston Elementary School held an impressive Invention Convention this past Friday afternoon. The students designed and built unique, practical inventions that they displayed and demonstrated to an appreciative audience of students, parents, and staff. The Convention exemplifies what students can do when given the opportunity to blend natural curiosity, creativity and the engineering process into a viable product for consumers. Thanks to the students and their teachers for an outstanding event!
