This year was the first time that I did not go to Outdoor School. That's because this year we have five teachers on our Seahawk's team and someone needed to stay back with students who didn't go. I am proud to say that those of us left behind actually had a great experience thanks to Tualatin city and their wonderful volunteer team, Victoria Eggleston and Jackie Konen. On Wednesday and Thursday, students worked with the city to plant native plants and remove invasive species plants along the Tualatin River banks. They worked their hearts out. Then on Friday we walked to Jurgens Park, learned about the park, and did a scavenger hunt. All three days we ate our lunch outside, read our books in the shade at school, and just had an overall great time. Below are some pictures of our experience.
