Classroom Project Fair and Documentary Screening
On November 14, elementary learners celebrated their first ever Ruby Bridges Walk to School Day. On this day they talked about Ruby’s bravery and reflected on the impact one person can have to improve the world. Inspired by her actions, each class followed their interests and created a plan to make the world a better place in their own way. To celebrate the children’s generosity of spirit and share in their knowledge, please join us in the Barn on Wednesday, April 26, from 3:00-3:30. Stay to be further inspired by the uplifting documentary 2040, a look at what the world could be like if we committed ourselves to existing sustainable practices. (The documentary will start at about 3:30 p.m. and runs 92 minutes.)
