Look at all of the syrup we made! After a few hours of boiling down the syrup that we had from evaporation day to finish it, we were able to make 96 small maple leaf bottles for the students and faculty plus 32 larger jugs to be auctioned off at our Spring Fling to raise money for next year’s program. Rather good for our first year! It must have been a huge pancake weekend last weekend as students and faculty enjoyed their bottles of liquid gold.
All in all a great project that has touched many families. Some of the older students and faculty members have already tapped trees at their homes and are making their own maple syrup outside of school, and just today I passed a home a few houses down the road form the school that had tapped a tree in their front lawn. I am so happy that others have learned form our project and are enjoying maple sugaring. Stay tuned for updates on our project as we prepare for next year’s event.
The cute bottles were purchased from Leader Evaporator in Vermont.
