The students had their share of challenges spending their entire day outside during less-than-ideal weather, enduring a very windy day on campus. They persevered as they learned about the challenges one may face hiking and camping in the wilderness.

Our group of HS students had an immense goal when they set out to study Unity and Division, and the students far exceeded what we thought we could cover.

This semester students are working on one long term target “I can identify and use the elements of art and the principles of design in my artwork to communicate ideas about the world.”
TEA Student Council is hosting an online fundraiser for our holiday service project this season that will go towards the recovery efforts of the Camp Fire.
I hope you will consider giving to an organization that has meant a lot to you or means a lot to the world; it does good and feels good. Thank you for giving to your causes, whatever they may be. More giving. More doing.
