Maple Syrup

The Maple Syrup tradition continues at Jackman...  and we had our best season ever.  Take a look at the numbers...

1 idea... "let's tap the maple trees at school"
4 years... yep... we've been doing this for 4 years
6 classes... learning about tapping and collecting sap
28 days... of collecting sap
34 litres... the most sap collected in one day
214 litres... the sap we collected last year
423 litres... total sap we collected this year
9 litres... maple syrup produced at Jackman
many eager kids checking the sap buckets daily
countless hours of boiling sap (thanks Darwin & Rolf)
hundreds of pancakes
hundreds of happy pancake eaters

Take a look at the pics...
