Happy Monday! I wanted to update you a bit about the land development surrounding Farm School and our plans for our grounds in the coming months.
Farm School relocated from my home in Cedar Park in November 2008. At that time, Crystal Falls Parkway was a very quiet two lane country road. Our parking lot was at the same level as the roadway! Wiley Middle School was already open, and Rouse High School had just opened to its first freshman class. Many neighbors had their land up for sale, but not much was happening in terms of new development. We nervously entered into a lease-to-own...
We are now using SignUp Genius to streamline events at the farm! It is easy to use and you aren't required to set up an account in order to sign up for a volunteer opportunities or events.
Click Here to sign up for projects and tools needed for the March 29 Parent Workday.
Just select the project you would like to work on or the tools you can share for the day and add your information! When you arrive for the workday, you'll be able to go to your project and get busy!
Look for future sign ups for the Spring Festival (volunteering for class booths/games) and other events.
Update 1/17/14: Thank you so much for your generosity in December and for helping us meet our goal of donating at least 25o food and personal care items to the Hill Country Ministries Food Pantry! We exceeded our goal by many items, weighing in at 271 lbs! We have updated our school wish list at several parents' request. Thank you!

During this season of giving we hate to be one more item to check off your list! We want each of you to know that we appreciate the gift...
Austin's own Carrie Contey, PhD (prenatal and perinatal psychology) will join us at Farm School for a parenting workshop entitled "Your Extraordinary Family Life". We'll all leave the workshop with improved skills to:
Minimize meltdowns (your kids and your own)
Support your little ones when they are feeling big emotions
Understand, read and respond to your child’s brain state
Tune into your own inner knowing
Foster deep connections now, for great relationships later
Know and choose what’s right for you and
You don't want to miss this!
Yay for rain! What a blessing this rain is to Central Texas! Unfortunately, the grounds are already quite mushy at the farm so we are going to cancel the workday for tomorrow. The rescheduled workday will take place on Saturday, October 5 from 8 - Noon. Enjoy the rain!
Have a safe, relaxing weekend.
Leslie & Janie
We have several projects planned for our upcoming workday! Below is a general list of tools that will be helpful for Saturday. Please park across Crystal Falls Parkway at Wiley Middle School in order to leave the parking lot open for our Open House visitors.
The forecast is calling for a 60-80% chance of rain tomorrow and Saturday. In the event that we have inclement weather, we will notify everyone via Facebook, school blog, school answering machine and email. If we have only a light rain and no severe weather, we will continue on with the workday. If we do cancel, the rain date will be Saturday,...
Happy Friday, everyone! Sunday is Grandparents Day! In honor of all our wonderful grandparents out there, we invite you to a Grandparents morning at the farm Monday, September 9 from 9:30 - 10:15.
