2011-2012 Events and Updates
2012 Don’t Fry Day
2010 Sun Fun Booth at the Carnival
October 16th was our annual Carnival. We had a “Sun Fun” booth, where students could apply sunscreen, get informative pamphlets, color sun safety sheets, and also enter a drawing for a free hat (which they could decorate). It was a great way to educate about how to protect your skin from the sun.
Sun Safety Information
As a result of the SunWise school Evaluation, we made sun safety information available to everyone (staff, parents, children and visitors) on both campuses by placing a variety of flyers in the parent welcome areas.
2010 Elementary Playground Expansion
At the end of the 2009-2010 school year, we decided to expand the elementary playground at our Montessori Drive campus. We focused on tree conservation and with the help of parent-owned Hernandez-Calhoun Design International, were able to preserve this tree for a shady sitting area.
We’ve also chosen to leave trees on the playground at our 12th Avenue campus. Shade is an important factor for areas where the children eat. More than a decade ago, a mimosa tree was planted in front of the 9-12 eating area to provide some shade.
