    Rosalie, I just love the cool fungi photos / education. They’re SO fundamental to healthy ecosystems and I know so little about them. Making it a point to learn though.

      I continue to learn, too. The map fungus creates amazing mosaic patterns on the dying leaf. What you’re seeing on the underside are hexagonal structures that contain the spores. On the topside, they appear as black dots. It’s only when you look on the underside of the leaf, under magnification, that you see the hexagonal shape. Very cool!

    Prospective families should know that an unusually large number of current students are leaving Pathfinder to do middle school elsewhere.

    Thank you, Pathfinder, and everyone who was there tonight. What a positive and informative session. The current students and alumnus did a great job sharing their experience. It was great hearing from teachers and current middle-school parents too. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
