Mr. Powell,

Thank you for being an advocate for all students. The No Child Left Inside initiative and the new eco-campus at John B. Cary will transform the learning environment. The opportunities this provides our scholars truly makes a difference. Scholars can see learning in every space around them. Instead of just reading about butterflies, we can visit the garden and see them up close. Instead of talking about living and non-living things, we can do our own outdoors investigation.Thank you for being the face of that.
