2nd Grade with baby chicks2nd Grade - As a part of the biology and life cycle unit, students were able to see first hand and track the life cycle of the nine chicken eggs that hatched recently in their classroom. As you can see, the 2nd grade students have obviously become attached to these furry chicks.  



8th Grade Snow Mtn Ranch

8th Grade - Snow Mountain Ranch

We are having a really fun time!  We took a survival class with our Y leader, TJ.  Students had to create shelters from only natural material that would keep them safe from the elements. They were given about 45 minutes to build them. We had so much fun - a highlight of our trip.  Wednesday, the students had an orienteering class. They had to calculate how many feet were in one “pace.” Then they had a riddle to solve by following “clues” (tree cookies!!!) which told them the degree to travel on their compasses, how many feet to go, and a word that in the end made one quote:  “one thorn of danger is worth a forest of experience”.

- The students in the Arts of the World Elective created Pinwheels for Peace. The idea came from the International Peace Day initiative, which started as a day for students to express their feelings about peace and collaborate with their peers.  It turned into a world-wide event. Our students wrote words of peace, acceptance, and strength on their pinwheels and they are displayed in front of building 3 to also support Colorado's Day Without Hate, which takes place this Friday across the state.
