oalc earth day 2 webOsseo Area Learning Center staff and students participated in a variety of Earth Day-related activities on April 22. Teachers collaborated with the Student Leadership Group to plan the activities which included decorating flower pots, planting flowers in those pots and taking them to brighten their homes. A  few students painted the new Labyrinth on the west side of the building and others conducted a clean-up of the OALC grounds.

For educational entertainment, some students challenged staff to a quiz show (Lifesmarts) on environmental issues. It was close at first, but the staff managed to sneak away with a victory. Students also enjoyed the sunny outdoors engaging in physical fitness activities such as basketball and double-dutch jump roping.
