It was Family Make You Own Pizza Night for After School students and their families last Thursday. Students helped make this dinner a success for their families in so many ways. They harvested lettuce, celery, tomatoes, peppers, nasturtiums and beans for a salad. Older students helped make pizza dough. Younger students made the sauce a week or two ago (see earlier blog). Some of the boys thought it would be nice to decorate the tables with flowers from our garden, so they cut bouquets for the tables. One talented parent created games to keep little ones occupied while the pizzas cooked in the oven. Each parent went home with pizza dough,  sauce for making another pizza at home sometime in the future. The flowers went home too! We hope to have more family supper nights during the year.
