The bees have arrived!  10,000 Carniolan (or as we call them "Carnies" ) honey bees were delivered today to Parker.  They are reported to be the gentlest of bees.  Bee enthusiast, 6th grader Jack, has rallied support from friends, local bee keeper mentors, corporate donors, and teachers to launch a bee program at the school.  Students will learn to take care of the hive and eventually harvest the honey.  Teachers will work the hive into the curriculum. 

Thank you Jack, for sharing your passion with your school!
