Piru fourth graders were awarded the Santa Cruz Island Field Trip again this year! We are so excited that we have been selected for this amazing opportunity for the last three years. We are thankful to Monique Navaro and the National Parks Foundation for their generosity. In preparation for our trip, Monique has been conducting distance learning sessions to acquaint students with concepts they may encounter on the trip. Students have also been talking at length about the Island of Blue Dolphins book that is read prior to the trip. This book’s setting is on the Island of San Nicholas near where the students will be visiting. Pictured are distant learning sessions with Monique. Also present was Ranger Menard and other guests.
