When Ms. Grill's 4th/5th combo finished testing they hopped on a bus and went on an overnight with Vida Verde education. They explored the coastline and the woods. They got up close and personal with slugs and worms. They befriended the camp goats. It was a great way to de-compress while still learning.
Vida Verde provides students from low-income, under-served schools with the powerful opportunity spend immersive time in nature and to improve their academic performance and classroom behavior, to develop the social and emotional skills that will help them be successful, and to establish meaningful connections with nature.
“It’s our belief that all kids are good, all kids can succeed, and it’s our job to give them the opportunities to realize their strengths,” Shawn Sears, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Vida Verde.
