Cheers to teachers Beate Vuilleumier and Angie Limpus who took extra time on weekends to be trained and certified by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife in order to conduct this education program.

Students studied the science of fish, their life cycles, measured their growth, drew diagrams and wrote letters to their fish. 

This is just another example of the comprehensive STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics) approach to education that teachers use at Cordova Gardens!
