Lesson in the Lake: Students Remove Invasive Species

Middle school students at Mount Madonna School combined a hands-on science lesson with a chance to cool off during last week’s hot weather, by wading and swimming in the School’s lake and removing – handful by handful – the abundant elodea that thrives there. Elodea, an invasive aquatic plant often used in aquariums is damaging to the lake’s ecology when left to grow unchecked.

Welcome Back to Middle & High School Students & Their Families!

Welcome to the 2011-12 academic year! School got off to an exciting start with successful middle and high school trips September 6th – 9th, which staff and students proclaimed “the best ever!”

Now that we’ve been on our “regular schedule” for a week, I’d like to tell you about what’s happening on campus this year. First of all, we are very thankful to welcome back all our faculty members from last year! We have an exceptional team of dedicated teachers.

‘Kelp the Otters’: Elementary Students Create Educational DVD to Raise Awareness About Sea Otters

‘Kelp The Otters’ is more than a clever play on words…it a plea that Mount Madonna School’s 5th grade students have taken to heart – and are encouraging the public to join in. Their goal is to educate people about the plight of the California Sea Otter, which is identified by scientists as a keystone species. Keystone species play a critical role in maintaining the healthy structure of their environment, in this case, the ocean habitat.
