With a little imagination and a lot of sand, students at Summit Environmental School created a frog pond as part of their year-end outdoor days.
Fifth-grade students camped and learned outdoor skills May 28-29, but also had a chance to hone their artistic skills. They worked with local sculptor Mike Martino to create a set of sand sculptures.
The project was made possible by a $500 grant from the La Crosse Public Education Foundation. Art specialist teacher Carissa Brudos wrote the grant request.
Previous grant requests at Summit helped pay for tents and related equipment used at the annual camping and educational event.
