    I want to hear more about the candy wrapper recycling box! Also, if you all have Netflix, you must watch "My Octopus Teacher!"

    We had an incredible time yesterday for Orca Recovery Day. The students did a fantastic job helping with the Fidalgo Bay Aquatic Reserve's volunteer Forage Fish Survey team!

    We are at ~1000 points! Good work team! So proud :) Hopefully, you take something from this activity that helps the endangered Southern Residents! Every small thing makes a big difference over time :)  

    Thought for the day: Wouldn't it be cool if there was a local gas station that only sold glass/can products in their coolers?
