Welcome back!  Indeed another terrific year is ahead of us at Haldane.  The summer has been busy planning for the new school year and preparing for a number of new initiatives.  As I am sure you are already aware, some unanticipated facility changes and updates arose, including the demolition of our modular classrooms.  Certainly, the phrase “Every cloud has a silver lining,” seems to hold true.  Although the surprise of having to retire these classrooms from campus was unanticipated, their removal has certainly improved the beauty of our bucolic campus.   I must say that is quite nice to be able to stand at the front doors of our elementary entrance and view our circle and playground.  I look forward to watching our students enjoy their time playing on this soon-to-be grassy area during recess and after school hours.

This year, Haldane's Farm to School program will be partnering with the Culinary Institute of America and their Slow Food chapter on campus. Each month, two young, enthusiastic chef interns will come to Haldane and teach a cooking class to the elementary classes K-5. The student chefs will work with Haldane students creating dishes with seasonal, locally-sourced vegetables and teach them about where their food comes from and how it gets on their plate. These dishes will then be served in the cafeteria to all students as a monthly veggie taste test. This is a program coordinated by Hudson Valley Farm to School, a special project of the Hudson Highlands Land Trust.
