In preparation for our focus next year JIES is working to get webcams installed in the JIES Outdoor Classroom. We also want to ensure the safest experience for students exploring in the Outdoor Classroom, so we are working to provide life jackets for students to use while  in the Outdoor Classroom. We are using Donor's Choose to fund both of these important Outdoor Classroom initiatives. See the links below for more information. If you know anyone who may want to help fund this project, please feel free to pass the links along! You could even share them on your social media outlets! Thanks so much!
