Saturday Morning at the Ranch!

Our jkl students recently experienced a community service event ranch-style! On November 16th, a group of JKL students assisted in beautifying the E.L.S.A. Ranch in Agoura Hills, CA. E.L.S.A. (Experience Learning Support with Animals) is a nonprofit organization that serves individuals with special needs and at-risk youth through the benefits of equine-assisted activities in a ranch setting. They opened up their ranch for our students to enhance a few areas on their grounds. We spruced up the chicken coop, demolished the fence surrounding the horse coral, and weeded and cleaned out the garden area. Students and staff worked hand-in-hand together to accomplish a much-appreciated ranch cleanup with smiles and laughter. The event was a huge success and ended with a picnic and making homemade lemonade. We are looking forward to collaborating with ELSA in the near future to provide more community service opportunities for our jkl students!
