Students, parents, staff, and One Desk Foundation volunteers created an outdoor space for active learning experiences and connecting to nature. Showing excellence in life, work, and citizenship skills, students were honored with lunches grilled by the principal and certificates of achievement. Fifth grade students presented their positions on studying the ocean versus outer space. Students showed their love of reading during Dr. Suess week. Upper grade students performed musical pieces that delighed the easr of our school community. Our community pitched in clearing sidewalks and making it safe for students to return to school. Thank you!
