Next PTA meeting: Monday April 14 6pm

Join us Monday April 14 at 6pm in the library for our next PTA meeting.

We’ll have a brief update about the Tech Team’s work on potential investments for the Learning Enrichment Fund – we’ll have an official vote at the May PTA meeting. We’ll spend most of the meeting talking about connecting kids to nature. We’ll have a guest speaker, Josh Leonard, Education Director at Saint Paul Public School’s Belwin Outdoor Science program.

Josh will talk about how connecting children to nature is one of the best ways to foster a sense of wonder and stewardship for the natural world. It can also boost learning and reduce behavior issues in the classroom, and in many cases it is the beginning of a lifelong love of science. Josh will discuss how and why children are connecting to nature through SPPS programs, and describe opportunities for families to engage with nature on their own.

Childcare is available for kids age 4 and up. Please email with the names and ages of your kids to reserve a spot.
