Students returned from Winter Break to a beautiful spring! The orchard began to bloom, classes and projects resumed, and lots of exciting field trips took place. Students in the Field Studies class visited the local chapter of the Sierra Club, where they met with Dan Millis and learned about the organization and its local conservation efforts. The school was also treated to a free performance of The Fantasticks! by our own Glen Coffman’s theater group Winding Road Theater.
Many more events happened during our all-school Councils, such as saying a sad farewell to Cosima, our first exchange student, learning about the issues with educational funding from David Lujan of the Arizona Center for Economic Progress, and hearing about the college enrollment process at Pima from Ryan Sermon.
In between classes, field trips, and presentations, students enjoyed the company of our new feathered residents in the chicken coop during lunch times and breaks.
