The Baja cluster will depart from EA this Monday morning, beginning their voyage to the Baja Peninsula. We will miss them, but we look forward to frequent updates on Instagram while they are away (@explorationsacademy). In addition, we will post longer stories and photos on our website and here, in the Family Bulletin.
Bon voyage, travelers!
Illuminight Winter Walk
Emergence from the darkness of winter is a journey we make alone, together. Join the YOYO clusters and help celebrate the self-expression glowing from within their beautifully embellished and hand-crafted paper lanterns. All YOYO students will attend this after-school celebration. We will provide an early dinner at EA, then depart on the buses for Mt. Vernon and return to EA by 7:30 pm. Please let staff know if your child will not be attending, or if they will be picked up at the festival. Families are encouraged to join us at this event.
The 6th Annual Illuminight Winter Walk is hosted by the Skagit Watershed Council. See the event Facebook page below for more information.

The Peru travelers had a long trek from Bellingham to their first destination: the town of Colca, where they will spend the next few days planting trees and working with students at the Quechua School. The following is an excerpt from Henry’s account of their final drive and joyful arrive into Colca.
