The winners of the district's "Farm To School" contest received a $200 gift
card for school supplies and a chance to take up to 60 students to a farm where
the district gets its fruits and vegetables.
Paul Sanchez was the winning teacher for Micheltorena Elementary. In addition to Micheltorena, the winning schools are:
- Pete Keuper of San Miguel Avenue Magnet School;
- Sandy Cimarrusti of Dorris Place Elementary;
- Jennifer DiLorenzo of Kester Avenue Elementary
- Eileen Washington of Wilshire Crest Elementary; and
To win the field trips, teachers submitted photos of working gardens at their schools, along with essays about how the field trip would teach students about nutrition and local, sustainable food supplies.
