1st Grade Nature Day
Elementary students continue to show kindness to their classmates and are rewarded with leaves on their class Kindness Tree. Once their tree is filled, they come to the art room and choose a large kindness leaf and have their photo taken. The students then place the leaf on the huge Kindness Tree in our lobby. Each leaf represents 10 acts of kindness and earns $1 towards a charity at the end of each school year. This year's donation will benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

On Tuesday, Middle School Envirothon students took part in the Susquehanna Valley Envirothon Competition at the Montour Preserve. Students were tested on their knowledge in 5 environmental science categories: wildlife, aquatics, forestry, soils, and a discovery station where they learned about the history of the bald eagle and got to view a nesting pair above Lake Chillisquaque. Each station included demonstrations from professionals in each field, who also served as judges.
