If you love the outdoors, we have a spot for you! Our EcoLiteracy Coordinator, Gena Grobarek, maintains all the gardens on campus with the help of students and volunteers. Offer your support to help weed the rain garden, the community food garden, or help plant one of the gardens under construction with students. Our gardens offer many lessons on healthy food options, the plant life cycle, and environmental stewardship.

Our campus is home to six decentralized libraries, yes each building has an age appropriate library of their own. With only one school librarian, who also teaches classes, it can be difficult to maintain book organization across campus. Join us any day/time of the week to help sort returned books, restock book shelves, and possibly even read to our youngest students.
