“Early literacy and putting books in the hands of our students have always been priorities here at Lakeview for us as a staff,” Vang-Vue tells Madison365. “In addition to that, taking learning outdoors is also really important to us here at Lakeview. We do believe that our children can learn in multiple ways and it doesn’t always have to happen within the four walls of the classroom.

“So when you combine those two ideas together, our “Green Team,” that’s what they call themselves, which consists of classroom teachers, our parent liaison, our community schools coordinator, our librarian, and our PE [physical education] teacher … they all came together to figure out the question: how can we continue to deepen our work here at Lakeview to do this?” Vang-Vue adds.”
