THE WAY WE LEARN
Take a look at what our students have been up to:
N.O.W. Lettuce Production
Aiden Guinn has been a part of the N.O.W. Lettuce Production in AVA for the past two years. He currently fulfills the role of Assistant Farm Manager and operates the 8 Flex Farm Units which produce approximately 25-30 pounds of lettuce each week for our schools and families in our community.
Community Mural Project
Yonder artist Don Krumpos collaborated with students from Algoma Venture Academy on a new mural design. Students were a part of each step of the process, from applying for grant funds to conceptualizing the mural itself. Excited to contribute to Algoma’s collection of vibrant murals, the students drew design inspiration from the people and beauty of Algoma.
During the spring semester of the 2022-2023 school year Berkley VanLanen held an event to bring together members of the Algoma Community. During this event adults from Sunshine Resources, ESI and Turning Point traveled to Algoma Venture Academy to participate in a variety of activities with AVA students.
Each fall our students organize a Beach Clean-up as part of the Alliance for the Great Lakes Adopt a Beach program. Our AVA students partner up with the 2nd grade elementary students and clean the beach while collecting data concerning the debris collected. This information is then reported and becomes part of a database that helps scientists identify sources of plastic pollution.
