Kellogg's Catchy Cards is back in business!

Williston Central School 3rd and 4th grade entrepreneurs are back again.  These students have chosen the theme of “Vermont Landscapes” for this year’s cards.  This integrated unit blends reading, writing, math, science, social studies, and art into ONE incredible learning lesson, and the cards are now ready to go to the printers.  This project is in its 4th year and has benefitted the Vermont Wildlife Rescue Association, the Humane Society of Chittenden County, and the Vermont Children’s HospitalThis year, all proceeds will directly benefit Therapy Dogs of Vermont.  You can see student artwork, read their persuasive essays, and order cards online by visiting tinyurl.com/kelloggscatchycards.   
Cards will be for sale at the Williston Farmers Market on Wednesday, June 4th and Adams Farm Market on Saturday, June 7th.
