Students at Sierra Expeditionary Learning School (SELS) celebrated Better World Day on Friday, May 4, by spreading kindness to various locations throughout Truckee, including the Tahoe Forest Health System. Fourth and fifth graders walked through the Tahoe Forest Hospital Long Term Care Center and the Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center delivering bright flowers, homemade treats, and handmade cards expressing thanks to staff, care providers, and physicians, and offering get-well cards to patients. The school joined more than 50,000 Expeditionary Learning Education students and teachers for Better World Day, a time to honor the power of students across the country to shape a more just future through their learning.
