The students in the Wolves East class have been making the most of the beautiful weather we've been having this fall, and they enjoy spending parts of each day outdoors. At Magic Circle Campfire, students ask each other thought-provoking questions each week, and get to learn more about their classmates through sharing their answers. The Wolves have also helped in the apple orchard by painting the apple trees. The paint protects the bark from splits and damage, and will help ensure our trees are healthy for years to come.
