My Students

Our students are active and creative. They learn through doing and exploring their environment. We integrate education with an emphasis on fitness, health, and mountain sports! We connect kids to nature and the outdoors, including the most amazing classroom for learning, Lake Tahoe.

Our school mission, in partnership with families, is to provide a high-achieving atmosphere to prepare our students to be educated, responsible citizens.

We strive to foster a joy of learning and to shape responsible, respectful, hard-working students, who learn good study habits, in preparation for a successful life.

My Project

I sent home watercolor paints for students to use during distance learning. I am purchasing new watercolor paints to replace the materials sent home.

Students join in on virtual art lessons.

We spend time together over the Internet being creative and socializing. Students share how they are feeling about the current stay at home mandate from the state. They talk about family, friends, school and how they miss their old lives.

It is therapeutic and relaxing at the same time. Students talk about what is going on in their lives, and their minds.
