In the Name of the Apple
Posted 12/21/2016 08:01AM

No, not the company…but  in the name of the Lebanese apple growers, Ain Aar and Ras Beirut dedicated a day called “Apple Day” to show appreciation for Lebanese apple growers. Due to the influx of foreign apples from abroad and the difficulty with transporting and exporting apples from Lebanon, the growers cannot get their product to market, which as Grade 5/CM2 are learning in How We Organize Ourselves, leads to a weak economy. To show our concern, the entire school enjoyed the local apples to help the growers put their product into the hands of the consumers. The Preschool and Elementary children were given a free apple at snack time. The students at the Middle and Secondary School had apples on sale at the Snack Bar. It was a small dent in a very big problem, and the hope is that students will encourage their parents to buy local apples. In the words of our children, “these are sweetest apples we ever tasted”….Munch an Apple a day, It’s the I LOVE Lebanon way!
