Help feed the school’s PBL beast this weekend
- Published: October 2, 2013
The Yellow Springs schools are making big changes this year to incorporate project-based learning into the curriculum, and the McKinney and Yellow Springs High School parent-teacher organization is doing its part to help fund the transition. As a fundraiser event the PTO will sponsor the first annual Yellow Springs Homecoming Pig Roast on Saturday Oct. 5 from 5 to 8 p.m. at Peifer Orchards.
The dinner will feature La Pampa Grill’s traditional Argentinian wood fired meat and vegetables, including organic local pork or chicken and corn on the cob, as well as food from The Winds Cafe. A bonfire, dancing and music by YSHS indie bands, including the new YSHS Street Band, will rock the orchard, which, for the traditionalists, will still hold an apple bobbing contest.
Tickets are $25/$15 for students under 18 and can be purchased in advance at The Winds Wine Cellar, YSHS main office, or by calling PTO co-chairs Craig Mesure at 937-708-0559 or Melissa Heston 937-901-0344. The PTO also welcomes suggested contributions of $50 and $100 to become a benefactor of the school’s PBL cause. This year’s Antioch College first-year students (class of 2017) are welcome free of charge.
