SCLA 11 had a great overnight trip to Denver! A great cultural dinner at Mongolian BBQ, Enjoying the Rockies game, Team building on Segways, and a tour of the State Capitol while visiting with some of our elected officials. The students organized and planned this trip as a final prep for their senior capstone projects.
Senior Center Open House- 11th graders capped off their Senior Center Mulch-Generational project by helping out at the Senior Center Open House. We prepared food, served food, danced, mingled and visited with Elvis. It was a great opportunity to mix and learn from the older generation, and have them see teenagers through different eyes.
