With the help of a local mushroom expert (and a kind donation of supplies), Calyx students spend the morning hard at work, drilling, plugging, and labeling mushroom logs!
We are building our knowledge base of mushrooms and how they connect to us, our community, and to the earth.
Mushrooms as Mentors
Fall Term, 2019
Our daily explorations on South Whidbey State Park trails have led us into the world of mushrooms. Student interest in mushrooms and mycelium are prompting a foray of interdisciplinary learning experiences in our forest, indoor classroom and beyond!
Calyx Kids Participate in Climate Action

Some of our Calyx families joined forces with Whidbey Island Climate Activists, voicing their concern for clean water and clean air.
As part of our sustainability curriculum, Calyx students learn about how they impact their environment with their actions and words.
