announcing falcon's nest!
We are so excited to share the name students chose for our planned outdoor learning environment. Falcon's Nest will offer Green Hope Elementary students opportunities to build creativity, problem-solving skills, cooperation and confidence.
Building Falcon's Nest will be a multi-year journey starting with creation of the master plan this year. You can keep up with all of our activities and find volunteer opportunities on our new Falcon's Nest webpage and blog!
