Summer is coming to a close and thoughts of a new school year are upon us. KBLS has many new improvements for the upcoming school year. Our new “Little School Garden” is just one of our upgrades. The children will be able to watch the crops grow, harvest the crops, study about the plants, and use the seeds to plant for the next season! I am so excited for the children to learn where their food comes from and eat from our garden.
