MTN 2021- June Calendar


The Mountain School is ramping up for a big Summer Session, and a picture like this is fuel for the fire, grist for the mill, and good reason to keep planning trips and building experiences for kids. Five for five on the target. This little guy is accurate, focused, and very proud of himself. The others who saw him follow instructions and create success were inspired by his great example.


Planning and finishing out the Two Rivers Community School year is giving way to finalizing the Mountain School Calendar. I am thrilled to be adding layers and complexity to the calendar while last May I wondered if we could operate at all. Pausing to appreciate a picture and a moment like this, I can't wait to see what unfolds this Colorado Summer.


Please use the following calendar as a general basis for our June operations. No doubt we will add, adapt, and change as needed to keep our Team moving in unison.
