Since our school opened in 2000, tapping maple trees has been a tradition with Mr. Pineda’s classes. This year the taps went in earlier than ever before! Tapping maple trees teaches children about a wonderful New England tradition and emphasizes lessons learned about environmental science, global climate change, and plant physiology. Staff members and friends of the school community take the watery solution home to make into syrup! Little helpers even visited over vacation to start collecting sap! Yum!
