Back to School

Posted on

Backpacks, pencils, markers, and new clothes are all over Peralta Trail as we start a new school year.  Of course, a new year can’t start without a new classroom.  Over the summer, I spent time organizing, hanging, building, and moving my class around.  Here are some pictures to document the occasion!

Stacks of stuff everywhere!

I even had some helpers come in and put together some shelves. Thanks, friends and family!


Soon the class was finished and ready for Meet Your Teacher Night!

Twenty-four desks ready for 24 kids!

A place to get caught up in some reading!

The library and word wall. Lots of opportunities to read!

My area where I work before and after school.

Time for Meet Your Teacher Night!  We had some great families come through and participate in a Scavenger Hunt.  Just take a look at the explorers they turned out to be!

 It looks like we are off to a great year!

What would you like to learn during your new year?

If you are not in school, think about when you were in school.  What did you learn or do that you will never forget?



Legend of the Lost Dutchman

Posted on

Mysterious events, creatures hidden among cracks and crevices, unforgiving terrain, and the thunder god watching over those who seek the gold.  All of these help describe the mysteries of the Superstition Mountains.  Our school is nestled amongst the foothills of this mysterious mountain and the Peralta Trailhead, and is home of the Legend of the Lost Dutchman.  

The picture below shows us in front of the mountains. They are shrouded in clouds.




We are fortunate to have such a famous location just outside our window.  





Watch our video for more facts and legends about this magnificent mountain.

Do you think their is a lost gold mine in the Superstition Mountains?  Let us know what you think.
