ESCONDIDO EDUCATION FOUNDATION TOURS JUNIPER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL!
Juniper Elementary is one of those best kept secrets Escondido has to offer. One of many grants they have received deals with student health and wellness. Students have planted wonderful gardens….the produce going to the school cafeteria for students to enjoy! Emphasis is on a balanced diet, the different food groups, and exercise. Juniper has a running club…there has been a 3% reduction in overweight students in the last 2 years.
We also saw classrooms where students use iPad’s for research; today using them to find out what things look like so their drawings would be accurate.
Wonderful murals adorn the walls. San Pasqual High School partnered with Juniper to paint the poles with inspirational phrases and words.
Juniper is a happening place!
