A new school year brings new faces to Roots&Shoots. As seniors graduate, new freshman act as replacements. To start the year, it was proposed to do a team-building field trip. With the first major holiday being Halloween, it was decided that an evening trip to a haunted corn maze would be ideal. This trip will give students an opportunity to get to know one another while having some festive fun.

As a school community, we strive to give each student an equal opportunity to achieve their full potential within the STEM program regardless of their personal backgrounds or abilities. This is why it is essential for this program to create and maintain a space were students feel safe, included, and have the ability to learn social emotional skills that will aid them throughout the remainder of their lives and educational journeys. We strive to be a leader in educating students about mental, social, and emotional health. For this reason, we will include programs such as Human Animal Bond in Tennessee (H.A.B.I.T), Restorative Practices, and Social Emotional Learning Programs. The space being funded will be utilized as a one-on-one space for students to interact with the Restorative Interventionist or Social Worker to address any emotional or community resource needs. Students will also have regular access to H.A.B.I.T services through H.A.B.I.T Volunteers who generously give their time to bring their animals to the school.

Mrs. Smith's Biology classes would like to reduce water use and storm drain pollution. We will excavate the lawn, lay down weed barrier that still allow water to pass through and put 3 inches of decorative rock on top. We will aerate the soil for better drainage, add top soil to certain areas to promote growth of plant native plants that will attract bees for pollinating. Our community is rich with almond, plum and peach trees which require pollinators.

My project will address the issue of reusing things to make enjoyable toys for animals as well as making a book share at the zoo that the visitors can donate books as well as take and read while at zoo.

I am in the student volunteer at the LA Zoo so I will be achieving this project with some of the other student volunteers. I will do this by asking for donations of books from the other student volunteers and my friends at school.
