A change of scenery, and time in nature, undoubtedly help students connect with Nature and each other. This amazing two-day retreat has continued to allow us to foster strong relationships and create a shared sense of community values and memories among our students!
Our NASA NICE grant allowed us to be able to bring Video Lab students from Fairview High School and Manhattan Middle school to this adventure, where they spent a weekend in Cal-Wood Education Center as part of a fina
l school year celebration and NTD program!
This retreat was carefully designed for our students to gain invaluable personal knowledge and outdoor experiences in order to allow them to bond together as a class, make fund and wonderful memories together.
Univision Colorado was up there as well! Univision Evening News Director Ana Melgar, and Meteorologist Gaston Heredia. They interviewed our students -and other students from Boulder High School who happened to be there for a weekend retreat (what great coincidence) with Assistant Principal Francis Schneeweiss.
The topic of discussion? What do you know about Climate Change? Is it true? Why are you up in the mountains on a Saturday? Doing what and why?
Our high school students participated in a role as chaperones or help with the program.

Thank you Cal-Wood, Univision Colorado, Margi, Juan and David for making this a unique, unforgettable and wonderful experience to all!
