Four Winds at EES

  • EES students are enriched by learning about the natural world in monthly, hands-on workshops in their classrooms, and led by volunteers from the school community - parents, grandparents, caregivers, and community members.

    • Summary: Four Winds is a wonderful program that enables volunteers (parents, neighbors, grandparents) to share science and nature with elementary school children in a fun and interactive way!  Our amazing trainer, Deb Parella, gives us all the necessary background information and learning activities at periodic training workshops.  She literally gives you all the knowledge and materials you need to share 1-2 hours of fun and education in the classroom. The kids adore these sessions where they get to do hands-on experiments, explore outside, and often make projects that they then take home to share with their family.  If you are interested in volunteering, please email us or sign up here:
