Community Scavenger Hunt

How much do you really know about the place where you live? Attention children of all ages! Farms of Amador, the Foothill Conservancy, and Mother Lode Land Trust have come together to develop a community scavenger hunt to give you fun and creative ways to begin exploring the places that define our communities. Our hope is to inspire you to get out doors and learn more about the areas in which we live; and who knows, by putting these pieces together you may even learn some of your town’s secrets! Every community is unique, and you can bet there is a story to be told. No matter where you live, how old you are, or whether you’re on foot, on a bike, or in a car; you can participate in this fun event! Click article title for more information and a printable packet.

We are starting to work on our 2020-2021 yearbook. Families are encouraged to turn in individual photos of their children that can be used on the grade pages of the yearbook. These can be photos from our Photo Day on April 7th or even candid shots taken at home. We are also wanting photos of unique things the kids have been doing this year. Families have been getting very creative with homeschooling and we would love to showcase that in the yearbook. With so much being virtual, we are relying on the parents to submit photos to make this a wonderful yearbook. Families can upload photos straight to the yearbook company by clicking on the article title. Please make sure that the photo is saved with the child's name and grade or name and event so that it will be placed correctly in the yearbook. Posted 3/5/21
