Nature Walks

Walking Wednesdays

Dear Division 15 families,

I wanted to inform you that we will be making an effort to try to go on weekly nature walks on Wednesdays.   Please help us to make these walks successful by packing outdoor shoes/boots, extra clothing, rain gear…etc. to match the weather of the day.  We will be venturing out rain or shine.

Thank you for your support,

Ms. Harstone
