Martha's Table Class of 2009

On August 20th, Martha's Table celebrated the accomplishments of the youngest members of our Children's Programs with a graduation ceremony. The afternoon was kicked off by a greeting from the assistant teachers of the 4 classrooms - they expressed their thanks to the children and their parents. Lindsey Buss, our president, said a few words of thanks to the teachers and the parents for making a difference in Martha's Table's children's lives. The children then put on a performance conducted by lead teacher, Camilla Swann. They sang Hello/Hola, I Feel Good Today and Where Are We Going?

Congratulations to all the children, parents and teachers. We are so proud of you!

Summer MTTP Open House

This past week the Martha's Table teens highlighted their summer accomplishments at a Open House hosted at Club Jin on 14th St. The teens showcased there talents in a variety of different ways. They created Martha's Table magazine, Modern Teen and expressed themselves through different mediums such as; abstract art, PSA announcements, mock newscasts, play writing and acting, fashion and t-shirt design. Below are some photos but really the night had a great energy that was not caught on camera. Please come out to the next Open House and support the teens in all their accomplishments. They worked so hard this summer and it really showed during the fantastic open house last Monday.

Some of the teens were showing their art work and others were featured on a PSA Announcement. Below Ron Allen, the Teen program Community Outreach Coordinator, is explaining the writing and acting workshop, the teens are behind him on stage getting ready for their performance.

Picking Peppers!

Yesterday, Demetri and some of the kids from the Elementary program picked some peppers from the garden. They were ripe for the picking and Demetri explained just how it should be done. The boys also cut off some mint that will be used to spice up the soup. Thanks for helping boys, good job! Please see all of the fantastic photos in the photos stream on the side bar titled "Planting and Picking in the Garden".

Citations Handed Out to Martha's Table Employees

Martha's Table employees were issued citations by our Pre-School Police this afternoon. They caught all of the troublemakers and covered all the usual hot spots, the cooks in the kitchen for making meals for the children everyday. They caught Debbie and Simone at the front desk for reading to the kids in classroom C. Our President and CEO, Lindsey Buss, was caught by his daughter for working hard in his office. The fine for all...a cookie!
