5th Grade "Quick Write" As I walk in the Ukrainian meadows with my dog Posey we see beautiful blue and yellow flowers dancing in the wind, for this is Ukraine. All of the Ukrainian people were freed, it was a joyous time. Everyone crowded around me and Posey, and we sat down and listened to peace. The birds sang for peace, the crikets chirped for peace, and the chipmunks skweaked for peace. After, everyone in the meadows ran down to their city and danced, for the Russians were gone, the war was gone, the war was dead. by Maddie

Teacher Appreciation
Over the past couple of years, Wildflower's Eco Club has prepped, planted and cared for a Monarch recovery garden. Milkweed, essential to the Monarch butterfly, is currently dormant waiting for spring to show itself, and eventually bloom to attract them in the warm summer months. Heather, one of our eco club volunteers, put together this educational video with a couple of Wildflower students which features the story of Monarchs and the Wildflower Monarch Recovery Garden. https://youtu.be/x59o2H3Pfeg

Thank you Odyssey Teams for assisting Wildflower in a school-wide virtual mosaic mural project. Each student and staff member had a square to replicate from the original image to create a unique abstract mosaic for everyone to enjoy! The original picture was created by Bonnie Parkin, local artist, art teacher, and founding member of Wildflower Open Classroom. The watercolor was one of our original logos for the school. Thanks again Odyssey Team members, Allison and Jonas for setting this up. And a special thank you to our devoted staff and talented students for creating this amazing piece of art!

Some heart-warming pictures to brighten your day! Sammie using Zoom with some students, reading in the park, and thinking about some people that might be having a hard time staying home and missing our friends and family. So since it’s “D” week in his Kindergarten class, we thought of a song that started with the letter “D” that might make people happy so we listened to the song, then Trevor was excited to draw a beautiful picture to share with a “happy” message to everyone ❤️

The Adolescent Program had the culmination of their Heroic Journey program with a Letting Go Ceremony at Bidwell Park's Fire Ring Wednesday evening. Student's brought an object to "give up" that symbolized that they are growing up and letting go of some of their childish ways of thinking. Students, along with their families and adult allies were in attendance for this heroic step towards growing up.
