- In the Works: Stay tuned for volunteer opportunities for parents and students to get involved in the following:
- Planning has begun for our community outreach day at Muscota Marsh, funded by Partnership for the Parks.
- We have been granted a planting bed at Sherman Creek for the spring and will establish an after school botanical club that would spend some time getting their hands dirty. Muscota classes will hopefully have a chance to spend some time digging and harvesting!
- After school Coding Club – It will start with a small launch this year and expand in the 2017-18 school year. Thank you to Amy Kraft for her talent and time!
