Trout in the Classroom

Something fishy is definitely going on in the Mountain Academy for Arts and Sciences! Specifically, baby trout. Our trout eggs have arrived and, for the whole school, the gestation and growth of the beautiful little creatures is the talk of the elementary town. Sixth and Second graders have prepared the tank to required specification and are leading this effort to raise these tiny fish into ones that can be certified for release into local streams and waterways. Along the way, children across the school will have the opportunity to witness this amazing, hands-on science learning.

The Season of Giving! Ask your child about their Giving Tree.


A little late -but here are some fabulous pictures from our field trip to the Fish Hatchery and the Raptor Rescue! Thank you to all the adults that were able to join us.
