A wonderful highlight from the month of February 2017, was a visit from the 8th grade students from Two Rivers School of Colorado. A special thanks to Molly Lou, our school director and Adriana Hire of Two Rivers School for helping to organize this visit! Students of both schools enjoyed geology expeditions with Dr. Marcus Johnson to better the fabulous features of local geology. Then, students from The Sierra School prepared a healthy snack / lunch for everyone for which kids from both schools had brought food. We all sat on the Casa Los Arcos front porch and had a double all-school meeting with both schools. We all sat down and all teachers, students and staff said something about ourselves. Following that, we all walked to the same beach to play capture the flag with all students. The Two Rivers students won.
I think it's really great for other schools to visit us. It's meaningful to see our similarities with other students our age, share activities and meet new friends. Sierra School students learn about other schools. Maybe Two Rivers school will one day might invite us to their school in Colorado. I really enjoyed meeting the kids and connecting with them, both when we were here inside the school as well as playing capture the flag on the beach. Next time a school comes to ours, I would like to again have a shared lunch and afternoon activities!
