Hello December! โ›„๏ธ

Can you believe that we have reached the last month of 2021?!

It's amazing to sit back and think of all the big things we've accomplished this year.

But for today, let's think about the little things that make this time of year special!
Things like the first snowfall, family traditions, colorful neighborhoods, warm fireplaces casting a magical glow.

What is your favorite thing to do in Idaho this time of year?!

Our TGA Coeur d'Alene Guardians recently explored their new surroundings at the Spokane River!

Students were able to identify various types of trees, mushrooms, and lichens.

They also practiced their leave no trace skills and removed many items of "trace" left along the pathways by others.

Conservation + Science + Adventures = The Guardians Academy Way!๐Ÿฆ‰

We are proud to call Idaho home.

They say it takes a village, and we can't think of anywhere better to have roots, other than right here in Idahome.

Today is #smallbusinesssaturday .
A day meant to highlight and celebrate small businesses leading up to the holidays.
The ones that are putting in the late hours, the weekends, the ones that are never truly off.

We know a thing or two about hard work around here. It's something we're teaching our kids every single day.

So remember to shop small today.
Feel free to tag a favorite Idaho small business in the comments below!

From our families to yours, a very Happy Thanksgiving to you Guardians!

We are so incredibly thankful to be a part of each child's life who walks through our doors.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

This week is a time for us to take a look at our lives and to be thankful for all we have.

We know it can be easy to forget how far we've come, especially when there's still so much excitement to come!

Today, we encourage you take a moment to look at the blessings in your life and reflect on just how much you've accomplished! โค๏ธ

As a reminder, both TGA locations are closed this week. But Fall break is a good reminder that the seasons are changing quickly here in Idaho!

Some suggested attire based on the temps are:

โ˜๏ธ40-50 degrees: Jacket, no shorts.
โ„๏ธ30-40 degrees: Winter jacket, hat, mittens, and hiking boots.
โ˜ƒ๏ธBelow 30 and if snowy: Full set of snow gear (winter jacket, snow pants, hat, mittens, and boots)

Did you know that today is National Take a Hike Day?!

We are so lucky to call Idaho home where public land and hiking trails are only a stone's throw away!

Here at The Guardians Academy, being outside and hiking or walking is a regular occurrence. We use nature walks as an opportunity not only get those wiggles out, but to expand our children's minds.

To teach them responsibility by reminding them the importance of leaving no trace.
To teach them safety by instilling the importance of knowing what to expect on the trails.
To teach them science. Lessons are all around us, every rock, stick, and bug is a lesson waiting to be learned!

Happy ##NationalTakeAHikeDay

A: To be human is to use technology. From fire-by-friction to the bow and arrow or knife, all the way to computers and robots.
Humans are technology users.
We encourage children to use technology as a tool to deepen their connection to the world around them, NOT as a replacement for that connection. Tech is a tool used to allow for ore choices, not to dictate the outline of their life.
