Welcome Back! 
Summer has come to and end, and CLC students were very busy learning about all things garden and farm related this summer! Students were tasked with planting a perennial garden near the school nature trail, planting a fruit orchard, and tending to the school garden. With the help of a Whole Foods Garden Grant we were able to purchase raspberry and blueberry bushes, grape trees, rhubarb, and cherries! So much fun! We even built a trellis for a our grapes! Students also got to go on a canoeing adventure as the final summer school send off! Pictures to come! What a great experience! To see pictures: please search and "like" Norwalk Ontario Wilton Community Learning Center on Facebook! You will also find CLC related updates on this site as well. 

CLC Sign-Up forms will be included with your student's back to school folder in their classrooms-- Please take note of this!
Return forms to your student's teacher. Any questions? Contact Ms. Showen via email: jshowen@now.k12.wi.us or phone: 608-337-4420.
Thank you!
