What's Happening-March 22, 2019
Kindergarten students at Old Mill Elementary are currently learning about the weather and the seasons. How fortunate that our students have opportunities to learn directly from their own community. Chris Covington, an avalanche forecaster and an Old Mill Elementary parent, visited some kindergarten classrooms last week and taught students about the causes of avalanches in our mountains and the importance of avalanche forecasting in protecting and informing the public. He shared and demonstrated some of the avalanche safety equipment, essential for doing his job in the snow and essential for mountain snow safety.
