Today, Thursday 6th May 2010, our Kindergarten and First Grade students are off to Hidden Villa Farm for a day of activities in a rather different environment than their normal classroom and school grounds.

Hidden Villa is a nonprofit educational organization that uses its organic farm, wilderness, and community to teach and provide opportunities to learn about the environment and social justice.  The estate stretches over 1,600 acres of open space in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, about 40 miles south of San Francisco.

The children in these grades have been looking forward to today's field trip for months. We will post a report once they've returned. Best wishes and prayers for your day on the farm!
