We aim to meet the academic, personal, and social needs of all students by creating a learning community where students are encouraged and supported to become lifelong learners and responsible citizens. Remember, once a duck always a duck!
Celebrate Literacy Month Outdoors
Grab a book and get outdoors! Reading is great — especially when it is done in the woods, sitting by a babbling creek or lying in the grass.
Tales along the Trails
Through the entire month of September you can find 5 comfy reading spots along the trails at Idler’s Rest Nature Preserve where we’ve provided a picture book you can read to your kids (see map for locations and click on the map to download a PDF). Check back each week for new titles and a new reading adventure.
Share photos of your adventures on our Idler’s Rest Facebook Page.

Exploring books about the land
If you are looking for a good book for yourself or your kids, check out these book lists (click on each to download a PDF). Each is a collection of books about nature, how people come together to protect the land, or how we are all affected by nature. Some are classics and others are newly published. These represent just a small selection that is available to the curious reader. Be sure to talk to your local librarians about other outdoor books as well. If you stop by the Latah County Library in Moscow, check out our display this month.
Join us for Family Movie Night, Friday, September 11th on our west lawn. Bring lawn chairs, blankets and your families and join us for a wonderful movie under the starts. The movie will begin when it gets dark, about 7:45PM!
