Students Help Create Greenspace at Local Elementary School
Students take a break from gardening to pose for a photo

Ten students from Prep's Partners of the Americas group had an amazing time on Sunday, Dec. 4 supporting the efforts of Amigos De Los Rios, an organization working to create the Emerald Necklace: a natural infrastructure network of green spaces, green schools, parks, and trails throughout under-served communities in the Los Angeles Basin. Our students joined the Amigos team and volunteers from Arcadia High School on a schoolyard transformation at Jackson Elementary School in Altadena. "Greening schoolyards provides climate friendly solutions to an outdated and oftentimes toxic asphalt blacktop schoolyard model," according to the Amigos website. What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday!
