Preparation for the opening of the Children’s Rights Trail at Viola Elementary School in Suffern, NY
One misty March day, Mariola Strahlberg met with Christine Druss (Principal) and Lynda Hammond (Instructional Facilitator) for a walk around the school to imagine a future Children’s Discovery Trail with the theme of Children’s Rights. Then in April, Mariola and Erin Schirm walked around the property again and decided on 15 nature features for the orienteering trail. Erin will create a map and Mariola will work with Dr. Druss to decide which children’s rights to include on the trail.
