My favorite things about CS are gardening, cooking, and fitness. I think everybody should go to this program because CS teaches us many things we will need to know when we grow up. I recommend this program to everybody that is interested in fitness, biking, cooking, and gardening.
We learn why to work out, how to take out pests in your garden, and how to bike. These things will help me in the future because I might need to clean out my garden, ride my bike, and work out to be strong.

I like the garden program because we get to plant and measure the beds. On Wednesday, we measured the length and width of the bed and also to see how many plants could fit in it and if there is more room for other types of plants. It was fun because we never did this before and we also drew pictures to see what beds we measured. In the summer, I would like to grow carrots, tomatoes, peas, and onions because they are all good and healthy. I wrote this because I like the plant program and because I think I am the expert at planting.

Concrete Safaris City Surfers- Biking Randalls Island
The season is changing and so are we! Day by day we make sure to get our homework done, learn about healthy foods and snacks, and get our exercise in. Our first large group bike trip was to Randalls Island Playground, a 4-mile round trip trek. It’s always amazing to see how fast and efficient our students can get their homework done outside in the fresh air, especially if some of their peers are already playing! Here is the group posing in front of the RFK bridge (aka triboro).
Todays lesson was about staying together and complying with cycling rules. Sometimes we forget that we are not the only cyclists on the road, but every mistake has a solution. That is why we discuss ways to minimize those mistakes from ever happening again. In this photo, a small group was complemented by a random biker. She said, “You kids are doing a great job biking and you’re so courteous, have a great day!”.
Every day we learn and today was no different. Remember courtesy counts-- You have to give it, to get it!
