El Morro exceeds Jog-a-Thon goal
On April 15, El Morro Elementary School students got to taste the fruit of their accomplishments with free ice cream in honor of raising $50,000 with their annual Jog-a-Thon.
An ice cream truck came to the school offering ice cream, popsicles and alternatives for kids with food allergies.
The Jog-a-Thon was March 30, organized by El Morro PTA, to raise funds for school programs. It is the biggest fundraiser of the year.
The Laguna College of Art & Design is welcoming a new eco-friendly course, Project GREEN.
The environmental ecology science class is funded through a grant from the Marisla Foundation, which promotes hands-on learning.
The LCAD students are taking advantage of their surroundings and are granted special access to the Laguna Coast Wilderness Park. They are studying the native and invasive non-native species and their impact on the land while developing an artistic campaign to inform the public.
