Million Daffodils Project

posted Oct 14, 2019, 2:21 PM by Bruce Bailey

Sixth grade students have been reading Pay it Forward and discussing community involvement as part of our Pride Time.  In keeping with that theme, students will be participating in the Million Daffodils for Belfast project.  On Friday, October 18, students will travel with their homeroom to Walsh Field to plant daffodils.  Homeroom classes will rotate to the site throughout the day and be outside for about an hour and a half in total.  (Lunch will occur at the normal time inside the building.)

Students should plan to dress for the weather, wearing good outdoor shoes and layers.  Bring gardening gloves if you have them. Parents interested in chaperoning should contact their child’s homeroom teacher.

Let’s Go!, a program of the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center, would like to thank you and your district staff for participating in our 2018-19 program year! Together we are working hard to support healthy behaviors in the places where children learn, play, and grow. 


Schools are recognized when they are implementing Let’s Go!’s environmental and policy strategies that support healthy eating and active living. School cafeterias are recognized when they are implementing best practices that reduce waste, increase participation, and make changes that help “nudge” students to make healthier choices.


We are pleased to announce that Troy A Howard Middle School is a recognized Let’s Go! site for the 2018-19 program year AND their cafeteria has achieved 2019 Let’s Go! Smarter Lunchroom recognition. We applaud the efforts of staff who oversee the Let’s Go! work in this school. Reaching this status is no easy task.


Let’s Go! is proud to work with schools like yours and we appreciate all you do to help create healthy environments. If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact your local Let’s Go! Coordinator, Michelle Athearn at mathearn@pbmc.org.   


Best regards,


Emily Walters, MPH

Director of Let’s Go!
