On October 1, 2019, kindergartners from CRES visited Gilby’s Apple Orchard with the funding provided by a CLEF grant. Students studied the life cycle of apples; observed, and tasted different types of apples; pick an appe off of a tree; went on a hayride; played on large bales of hay and picked out a pumpkin to bring home.
CLEF awarded $21,700 in grants for C-I student activities during the 2018-2019 school year.
On January 31st, seventy-five CRES 5th graders made their annual 3 day/2 night visit to Deep Portage Learning Center. During their stay, students participated in several educational programs while enjoying our Minnesota winter season. Additionally, the students were given the opportunity to climb Deep Portage’s rock wall. CLEF was proud to financially support this learning activity.
