Have a wonderful, safe summer!
Some ideas for outdoor fun: hike at our area parks; build a treefort; sleep outside under the stars; organize a lemonade stand and give the money to charity; make up games that involve water balloons; go to the local pool; bird watch and keep a log of the different birds; go bike riding; go to the park; go fossil hunting at the river; have bike races (with helmets); go to the library; have a scavenger hunt in your yard; pick berries; pack a picnic lunch; put on a play; visit a museum; have an outdoor painting party using canvases or cardboard; create leis with wildflowers; wade in the river (with an adult) and search for minnows and tadpoles; play in the water sprinkler; read under a shady tree; and swing in a hammock.
Thank you to Ecolab for selecting our school as a recipient of the Ecolab 2016-2017 Visions for Learning Grant Program. These funds are designated for art and music programs. In addition, thanks to our librarian, Mrs. Gay Henderson, for submitting the grant proposal for our school.
Blue Ridge Campus Hope Brigade joined with the Jefferson County Fair's Relay For Life team to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Thanks to the generosity of our students and their families, we raised over $900! A special thank you to everyone who helped us reach this goal!
