    Students celebrate a lost tooth with Baker's Health Team! When a child loses a tooth, they are invited to visit the nurse's office, rinse, and choose a container. Students add a paper tooth with their name to the JAWSOME board!

    plants in garden

    A collaborative effort between the Baker Shared Decision Making Committee, Baker PTO, local Boy Scout and Cub Scout Troops, classroom teachers, parents, and students, has made a long-awaited dream come true! Parent members of the committee together with teachers and students from two fourth-grade classrooms, helped to plant seeds, grow seedlings and transfer plants into the garden planters. Some vegetables and herbs that have been planted are snap peas, cilantro, lettuce, kale, basil, radishes, squash, bush beans, eggplant, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, and marigolds. This past week, the first harvest from the Baker Community Garden was delivered to St. Aloysius Interfaith Food Pantry on Middle Neck Road. We look forward to making more donations to allow for healthy food distribution to Great Neck families.
