Congratulations to all the members of the Cross Country Team. They practiced twice a week for 5 weeks, competed in 3 mini-meets at Clinton Park and came out to a rescheduled final meet at Trout Lake. At every practice and meet the students supported and cheered for each other and demonstrated qualities of respect and fair play. Thank you to all the family members who ran with the team at practices, helped with ribbons at Clinton Park and drove students to events. It was a pleasure to coach this team!

My name is Alex Chesney and I am the Food & Garden Coordinator at the Hastings Community Center. I wanted to reach out to you and hopefully connect your school's students and families with our programming. We offer a variety of food, nutrition, and gardening workshops at the community center, and would love to have you join us!
Tuesday October 24th from 10am until Noon we have a workshop featuring a discussion and hands-on cooking demonstration for Healthy Lunches for Kids. Here's the registration link.
We also have a variety of other workshops coming up this fall. Here are a few more links, just in case you are interested!
Most of these workshops are being facilitated by extremely knowledgeable, fun, and engaging Registered Dietitians, who will be available to answer any of your food and nutrition-related questions! The small class-size of these workshops makes for an excellent chance for discussion and learning.
You can also register for these workshops in person or via the phone.
Please don't hesitate to reach out should you have any questions or concerns!
Looking forward to hearing from you,
