Oct. 6, 2015 Today was a wonderful day for our students at JBB. Our school was beaming with beauty and overflowing with excitement as we welcomed our guests and the First Lady of Virginia. To celebrate Virginia Farm School Week, Virginia First Lady McAuliffe joined JBB students in the garden to help harvest sweet potatoes.
Mrs. McAuliffe also read, My Virginia Plate, written by Tammy Maxey to the students. A book she generously donated to our JBB library This book was named 2015 Virginia Agriculture in the Classroom (AITC) Book of the Year.
Mrs. McAuliffe finished her visit in the cafeteria joining the students for lunch. With help from our cafeteria staff, our custodians, our office staff, our 1st graders and 1st grade team, our SHIPS staff, cafeteria TAs, the HMS Bee Crew, and Ms. Hammer and our Garden Club, we had a wonderful Farm to School Week.
