We selected and developed the Bugging in Science campaign. We used the map to identify and contact collaborators to support us and guide us. We were referred to a Science teacher from Retired Teacher Association in our State and they referred us to Brad Rheu , the 2014 Science Teacher of the year. He wants to be an Advisor and has agreed to a volunteer Science Coach. We had a meet and greet luncheon at the community library. There we met Dr. Bobby Wilson who shares our passion and will be an Advisor and a volunteer Science Coach. In mapping we also found North West Area Health Education Center and they have helped us by borrowing two microscopes from the School System for us to use in the workshops. A donor receiving a fundraising newsletter from us purchased a microscope for us. Roots and Shoots granted a microscope for us. We now have four. Science professional Coach and student volunteers will lead a fun engaging activity with microscopes and prepared and unprepared safety slides. The youth in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades will be introduced to microscopes and slides of insect wings, honey, salt sugar solil, old water, insect legs mold, bugs, leaves, hair, antenna and feathers. -- Another community resource is Neighbors for Better Neighborhoods have guided through thinking about future challenges and obstacles. We have also reached out to school principals,and will follow up in August and September. Science teen volunteers will partner with the students and assist the assist the volunteer Coach. The microscopes and slides will fascinate and educate them. They will have discussions on Science careers. We will let them choose a free book of their choice to encourage a love of reading. The books are all different and selected with by children with donations. Parents can get a book, too. We provide Donations of school supplies We feed the body mind with healthy fruit snack are also distributed to the youth. The workshops will be small projects held in low income areas in community mapped referred places of worship, recreation centers, libraries, and schools.
I am going to paint watercolor portraits of kids with cancer to help brighten their day. I'll get in touch with local hospitals, obtain photographs of kids, paint them, and then give them the portraits.
We have a huge Lower School (K-4) event each year called Capture the Campus and this is a fun event to help students feel comfortable on all parts of our campus. We have a middle school as well, but during this event those students and teachers are away on class trips. Thus, Lower School has the campus to ourselves. For years we have had many exciting and out-of-the-ordinary events during this week, and this year we added a service component because service is really important at our school. Each grade level selected a project that helped our campus or community in some way. We wanted to post the project here because two of our third graders recently went to a talk by Jane Goodall and were inspired to do a Roots and Shoots project. Our third graders selected the campus beautification project and spent a significant amount of time working to clean our campus. Many of them also spread mulch around our landscaping. Our kindergartners spent time picking up trash around our campus. We have about 21 acres of property, including wooded areas and a creek where many native species live. Thus, keeping our property clean and taken care of directly impacts how the native species are doing. First grade developed relationships with our community neighbors. They made signs for them, visited, and even sung a song to help strengthen our relationship with our neighbors. Second grade worked to make signs, letters, and art to welcome students from other schools who will be on our campus this summer for our Horizons Austin Trinity program. Collecting, sorting, and returning lost and found items was a fourth grade projects, and wow does that help our community in more ways than you might think. Plus, we are hoping it help students realized how important it was to be responsible with their own items. Fourth grade also designed and decorated stationary to give to faculty for all the letters they need to write throughout the year. Our Mandarin classes teamed up with our technology classes to write and deliver thank you notes to folks on campus who are instrumental in the daily running of the school, but who the children do not see very often. Gratitude is a trait we are hoping to instill in our students. Singing telegrams were delivered by some of our second graders in music class to staff members who have helped behind the scenes prepare for all of our Lower School musicals.

Understand that the connections that we make with nature affect all things living and nonliving around us. Study Plant Life in our school yard and link the indoor garden with our Outdoor Classroom space. Understand the connection between plant life in our forest and the animals that the forest services, including us. Identify the native and invasive plants and trees. Study the therapeutic uses of our gardens. Understand the forest in terms of foraging and begin to learn about therapeutic gardening and the indigenous plants in the area. Begin to affect changes that are beneficial to people, animals and plants. Learn to create action and give back to others. .
I will try to do the best I can to help
