Sustainability at a Glance

"In wilderness lies the hope of the world." -John Muir

Our Lower Elementary engineers wrapped up their pasta car race series and have now moved on to building egg baskets that will protect the precious cargo down an exhilarating zip line ride. This past week, we used our dear friend, the plastic egg. But next week? Real eggs and water balloons are the test! It’s been hilarious watching them get so attached to my plastic egg.

Both Lower and Upper Elementary students delved into the world of worms spending the last few weeks learning about vermicomposting. Their curiosity led to intriguing questions and fascinating observations as they explored the benefits of worms and their life cycle. Both groups took their learning to the next level by creating wonderful learning materials for our NatureFest booth last weekend.

Upper Elementary has been tending to our garden this spring! Planting, weeding, and watering—these kids have green thumbs for sure. And now, it’s time to taste the fruits (or veggies) of their labor. Yum! The menu this week includes radishes and lettuce!

Our Middle School students have been active participants in community service, volunteering at Feed NC to support our neighbors in need. Their dedication to giving back and making a difference is truly inspiring.

Additionally, they’ve tackled big questions and transformed them into action plans, showcasing their diverse passions and unwavering determination to solve problems. From camping adventures to rock climbing excursions, they’ve embraced challenges with grit and teamwork, leaving me in awe of their resilience and spirit.

And let's not overlook our Primary students! While we don't have dedicated class time, this bunch is ever-ready to lend a helping hand. Their enthusiasm often reminds me to pause and appreciate the simple tasks, as they see each one as an exciting learning adventure. Their infectious joy truly lights up any space they are in.

It’s a privilege and an honor to continue to learn with the students and I'm grateful for the opportunity to inspire and be inspired by each and every one of them.May the lessons learned and memories made continue to shape our lives for years to come.

I loved every part of this. I especially like the thought to pause and enjoy the simple tasks. We all need that : )
