School for Advanced Studies

As of the 2016-2017 school year, we are happy to announce that Glenfeliz Blvd. Elementary has been designated as a School for Advanced Studies (SAS) in Farm to Table and the Culinary Arts. Our SAS program is the first of its kind in LAUSD and we will serve as a District model for innovative and research-based curriculum. This academy will co-exist beside our regular school program.
 
The Glenfeliz School for Advanced Studies Farm to Table and Culinary Arts program is designed to give students the opportunity to learn core curriculum subjects like Science, Math and English Language Arts through gardening and cooking, while also emphasizing environmental science and community outreach. We hope to instill a lifelong passion in our students for learning and social responsibility.

Friday Night in the Garden

What a better way to showcase our new School for Advanced Studies designation than by hosting our 2nd annual Friday Night in the Garden event on Friday, April 22nd from 4:30pm to 6:30pm. In addition to showing off the Glenfeliz Garden to our community, we will also have cooking demonstrations, hands-on activities for kids, live music and a raffle for thirteen beautiful garden-themed gift baskets. This year, we are excited to welcome Chef Jason from Forage Restaurant in Silverlake who will be demonstrating how to make our signature Glenfeliz Kale Salad. Glenfeliz is very proud of our long-standing partnership with Forage. Each year our students harvest vegetables from our garden to deliver to Forage for a special dish. Thank you to Forage for helping teach our kids that healthy foods can taste amazing.

 

We are also very excited to welcome Chef Lovely Jackson from Common Threads. A group of our students completed their beginning cooking class with Chef Lovely at the end of our Fall Semester and many of them have progressed to an advanced cooking class. Chef Lovely will be at our Garden Gala showcasing some simple and delicious kid-friendly recipes.

 
We have many people to thank at this year’s Gala, but we would like to extend a particularly hearty thank you to the Healthy Kids Foundation for awarding us $5,000 towards our garden and our Jog-a-Thon. We would also like to thank Lowe’s for giving us a $3,500 grant to help with our garden program and the Atwater Village Neighborhood Council for awarding us $2,000 to help sponsor our Garden Ranger program.
 
Thank you to our community for all of your support. We hope that you can join us and watch Glenfeliz grow!
