Photos of the week: The sudden warm temperatures revealed some trash that had been buried beneath the snow on the school grounds. A group of Bear Cubs noticed and decided to form a team called the Nature Girls to clean up the trash. Here they are pictured in action wearing their rain suits, which help keep them dry from the sloppy conditions. The Bear Cubs also had a special campfire recently where they made banana boats over the fire. Between enjoying the outdoors and caring for the environment, the Bear Cubs continue to deepen their appreciation of the natural world.
As always, please call the office if you have any questions on school related items. I am glad to assist you!
