Some Pleasant Avenue students had the opportunity recently to complete a scavenger hunt on the Nature trail behind Pleasant Avenue School.
A Nature Trail committee compromised of teachers, the Pleasant Ave. Principal, and the District’s buildings & grounds department began meeting several months ago to discuss revitalizing the trail. The buildings & grounds crew have begun cleaning up the trail and have been able to open the main loop. More repairs will follow to make more of the trail safe for use. Teachers are working on curriculum that incorporates the flora and fauna found there to implement with students next year.
The trail is a great resource in our own backyard – there are an infinite number of real life applications for learning that can happen there!
