This was Marcus' first week at the Cottage Coop Preschool, just around the corner from home. He is officially in love with the playyard and with his teachers, and is enjoying exploring, singing, pretending & the classroom pets. At snack time Mar was thrilled to be able to pour his own water and promptly held his plastic cup up to a classmate and declared, "Cheers!", starting a string of two-year-old salutations.
The school attempts to do all the fundraising for the year by partnering with the local Whole Foods and hosting an Apple Sale, each September. Basically, for the low price of $20 you get a dozen locally grown, organic apples in a snazzy reusable bag. You'll receive a voucher for your apples and can head into the Whole Foods on Arroyo to pick up your goodies! You can pay directly online through paypal or give me a check before September 30.
If you live out of the area, and still would like to help the school and our community, I'd like to propose 3 options:
1. Purchase a bag of apples, which I will pick up on your behalf, and deliver to the local
shelter for Women & Children
2. Purchase a bag of apples, which I will pick up on your behalf & turn into a tasty jar of homemade apple jelly to mail to your doorstep (just send me your address along with the confirmation email).
3. Make an online donation of an amount of your choosing, so Marcus and other families can continue to enjoy this amazing environment.
Come on, who can resist Marcus' cuteness OR apples?
