Mountain View Intermediate School will be offering the Muddy Sneakers program to ALL of our 5th-grade students next year. This program provides 6 field experiences (4 off-site and 2 on the school campus) that correlate with the science standards for 5th grade. Because we have such a large group, they are looking to hire part-time instructors for their program.
Also, if you would like to learn more about this program or how you can sponsor a student or team, please contact Jennifer Love at email@example.com. The total cost is $50.00 per student for ALL 6 field experiences.
