Earth Day celebrates its 50th year of worldwide commitment to protect, support and advocate for the environment. Lake Tahoe School students do this each day through their sustainable practices on Café Day, with their clean-up efforts of the Tahoe East Shore Trail, by recycling paper and reusing water bottles, and by learning how to protect and preserve our local environmental gems, Lake Tahoe and the Tahoe Basin.

It Starts with Science

Earlier this spring, Lower and Middle School Division Science teachers, Madelyn Rios and Rod Tayler, supported by core teachers and enrichment faculty, led more than 120 LTS students through the trials – and tribulations – of Science Fair. Highlights included maps of animals found in Africa, comparisons of snowboard wax, how to make a marble tunnel, and Incline Creek restoration best practices.

Be on the lookout for LTS middle school students expanding their stewardship of the Trail as summer begins and clean-up needs increase. Honk if you love seeing LTS Bobcats at work in their community.
