GeerCrest Farm Overnight
LE 1 had the opportunity to spend an overnight at GeerCrest Farm, just outside of Salem last Wednesday.  Highlights of the trip were milking the goats, feeding the chickens, cuddling “Flint” the lamb, planting and playing in the treehouse.  The trip was a huge success and we are looking forward to continuing this relationship with GeerCrest Farm in the future.

GeerCrest will be hosting their Annual Renuion and Hoedown this summer for anyone who is interested.  It is July 18th at 3pm.  $10 suggested donation per family and $20 per campsite.  For more information visitwww.GeerCrest.org.

Prescott Madrone Tree

If you’ve been on the playground this week, you may have noticed that the Madrone tree in the back corner has been damaged. Students peeled several feet of bark from the trunk of the tree during an after-school event. The damage goes all the way around the trunk, which is know as “girdling” the tree.  Because the bark carries the sap and nutrients to the leaves, it will likely die and have to be removed. Many students were upset by this news and you may want to take this opportunity to speak with them.
