What's Cooking at the 1st St. Cafe

Last week we had a great time cooking in class. Our last Book of the Month was a wonderful story about how two people met and learned how different their cultures were with food and eating. The young lady in the story was from Japan and ate with chop sticks. So we decided learn a little bit about the Japanese culture. We were lucky to have Ms. Nikki come and teach us Origami - that was great. Then we talked about where Japan is located. Finally we made rice and stir fry- it was yummy.

Donors Choose - It's All In the Bag

Can you feel it? It's autumn! Our class could really use help with supplies in order to finish off the school year strong. So we've created a classroom project request on a 501(c)3 charity website called

We are writing to ask for any donations possible for our students - no matter the size, it will help our kids. This week only, any donation you make to my project will be doubled! If you know anyone who is passionate about education, please pass this along. Your tax-deductible donation will have a direct impact on at least 36 students, and you'll hear back from our class about your impact on our learning!

To learn more or donate:
Visit our Teacher Page,
Choose the It's All In The Bag projects, enter the amount of your donation, and click "Give"
During check-out, enter the word PUMPKIN where it says "Match or gift code", and your donation will be matched dollar for dollar.
The PUMPKIN match code will double your donation until the end of the day on Monday, Ocotber 15. So exciting!

Please feel free to send us any questions you may have, and know that we all greatly appreciate your support.

Happy Fall!
Debbie Harbour & Tenean Wright
