What's Happening at The Earth School?

Wondering what Pre-K is like at the Earth School? One of our teachers, Ashley, gave us a peek inside one of the classrooms that our littlest Earthlings call home.

We would like to extend a huge thank-you to everyone who braved the heat on Saturday, May 21, to help us paint the mural in the big yard! It looks FANTASTIC! See some pictures from the day!
