Snow Much Fun!
Kate Houle, Communications Specialist

Spring Semester at Conserve School always involves an abundance of snow. This semester is no different, as there is currently no shortage of snow in the Northwoods! According to our campus statistics, carefully recorded by our resident snow enthusiast, Phil DeLong, Director of Student Support and Teaching Fellow Coordinator, we have had over 106 inches of snowfall so far this season.

One might wonder what people do when there is this much snow? For a school whose mission has an outdoor focus, this means that we all learn to dress for the extreme cold, participate in outdoor activities in the snow and, yes, even have fun in the snow. In addition to an endless array of after school activities as well as recreational opportunities like skiing and snowshoeing, many classes take place outside in the snow, from Outdoor Skills to Science, History, English, Earth Art, and Photography. Explore the Conserve School experience in the heart of winter. Read the stories in this newsletter, as well as the stories and photos below from teachers and students that highlight both fun and learning in the snow!
