Watermelon Day

The first DeKalb County local produce of the month took place on Friday, August 26th.  All DeKalb County students were served watermelon fresh from a local Georgia Farm.  At Fernbank, we declared a Watermelon Day where the PE coaches encouraged the students to wear red for watermelon. Better yet, wear red on top and green on the bottom to look like a slice of watermelon! 

 Students who bought lunch, chose the watermelon side.  Some lunchbox kids brought their own watermelon from home and others bought a side of watermelon for 75cents in the lunch line.  Everyone received a “Fernbank Farm to School” tractor stamp on their hand for participating in Watermelon Day.  The stamp was red, of course!  Don’t forget to stop by the library and take a look at the slide show of Watermelon Day.  Thanks to all who helped make it a success!
