Our grant writer has been hard at work getting a jump start on planning for Grade 6 to attend Outdoor School in May 2015. A big “Thank You” goes out to the Jack Baldwin Memorial Outdoor Education Fund of the Gorge Community Foundation for supporting White Salmon students to study science and nature in their own backyard. The more students connect their surroundings with their classroom learning they become more engaged, inquisitive, seeking more knowledge. What more could we ask for, real life experiences to complement the work of our teaching staff. Thank you to Miss Erkila for heading up the Outdoor School program and to Leigh Hancock our fabulous grant writer.
And to the White Salmon community who helps support the costs of writing grants to outside sources, without you this would not be possible – thank you!
