Several weeks after the 4th graders had left bags of leaves in the Little Spokane River, they collected their bags and looked for macroinvertibrates (bugs!) that they could identify. Different species indicate whether the river is healthy or not. See a Photo Gallery of them discovering all kinds of tiny critters!
The 8th graders divided up into four teams and spent May 20th roaming the woods above campus overcoming various challenges. See photo galleries of different teams Rappelling Down the Dragon Crag, attempting a Tyrolean Traverse across a ravine, Creating Shapes and Guiding Partners while blindfolded, and navigating a Balance Challenge. Plus see a short Video of Highlights from Teambuilding Day!
