School Wide Initiatives
In our school-wide initiatives, we strive to continually improve our school and the education and experience we can provide. Here are some current plans for improvement.
A new school sign
Getting closer every day! Thanks to an amazingly generous donor, our new sign will be a source of pride every time we look at it. We’re currently wading through the lengthy permitting process with the city. This initiative impacts our surrounding community, enhancing the view of our campus (the old sign needs to retire!).
School Office Remodel
As our school grows, we have additional needs. We want to greet our visitors in a welcoming, safe way. We want to keep our kids even safer. Plans are drawn, permits are in the process and soon we will be ready to expand our front entry and remodel it into a lobby and school reception area.
Outdoor Learning Lab
Project-based learning (PBL), Mission Focused Learning (MFL), and Differentiated Learning all happen here! As our volunteers cleared our land of blackberry bushes, they uncovered a large area PERFECT for the students to solve all kinds of real-life problems, improve their school campus, enrich their learning and develop some 21st century skills. We have plans to redo a shed into an outdoor classroom. The surrounding area is perfect to develop an outdoor play area for digging in the dirt, building forts, and climbing. A stream restoration is in the horizon too!

A new play field
[singlepic id=208 w=320 h=240 float=right]We have some great ideas for this potential play field. If you’re interested in helping, especially if you’re in the dirt moving business, please let us know.
Finished Projects- Thanks to generous donors and helpful supporters
iPads in the classroom
ACCOMPLISHED! We now feature iPads in the classroom! These iPads enhance our STEM initiatives in each classroom, putting technology in the hands of the most important people on our campus – the students.
A new fence to improve safety
Done! We want to keep our kids even safer. The new fence allows us to block all access to the parking lot and the school.
