Dining Nutrition For Kids

 A variety of nutritious lunch selections is prepared on site daily from scratch for students in Kindergarten through 8th Grade as well as all faculty and staff. The family-style service groups classmates at tables with a designated teacher in a sunlit dining hall that has been a beloved feature of Green Vale’s campus for generations. A non-sectarian grace or moment of silence is observed during each of the lunch periods. Students are expected to exercise appropriate table manners while eating and socializing.

Organic Garden

Organic Garden in Green ValeGreen Vale is proud to maintain an organic produce garden on campus. A collaboration between students, teachers, and parent volunteers, the garden is a hands-on teaching lab for science and exploration, and a reminder to everyone of our dependence on healthy land and the need to act locally.

Learning opportunities prompted by the garden abound. Kindergarten students harvest tomatoes, carrots and cabbage, studying the roots, leaves, and fruit of each plant in the process. Second graders enact Native American custom as they tend a bed dedicated to their curriculum: “The Three Sisters” —corn, beans, and squash— are Mohawk staple crops that thrive and support one another when planted together. “The Peter Rabbit Bed” is where Nursery classes gather to nibble a carrot or cherry tomato during outside story time.
