Field Trip for LEARN Students

Students in the LEARN program at MDJH enjoyed an end of year field trip to Murray’s Farms in Portugal Cove/St. Phillips. This was the final portion of our community garden revitalization which was funded by the Conservation Corps!

Thanks to Evan, Emad and Nezar for the excellent tour!

Year End Reminders

Just a couple of items as we wind down the school year:

  1. Can you please remind students that ALL textbooks, library books, and locks must be returned to school?
  2. Thursday is our last day of school and students will be receiving their report cards. We will be celebrating our last day with a virtual in-class year end assembly.
  3. We are so proud to say that to date, we have sold 25 boulders for our second outdoor classroom! If a family or families would like to purchase a boulder for $150, it can be dedicated to a person or family and will be memorialized by a small plaque embedded on the boulder. Please contact Ms. Pike if you are interested.

Thank you once again.
