MLES Benefits from Community Partnerships

MLES Benefits from Strong Community Partnerships
Posted on 09/10/2020

The Partner in Education program is designed to provide hands-on opportunities for local businesses to share their expertise and resources with teachers and students because, as one partner says, “public education is everyone’s business.”

Douglas County Farm Bureau and LifeGate Church and helping Mirror Lake Elementary School kickoff the 2020-2021 school year.

Farm Bureau provides classroom speakers, sponsors Ag in the Classroom, Book of the Month, and has other educational resources available for classrooms. Alicia Kopp from Farm Bureau visited recently with school staff to share information about the free educational resources Farm Bureau offers. She was joined by Mirror Lake’s own Natalie Murray, a teacher and coordinator of the school’s garden and member of Farm Bureau’s Women’s Committee. Mirror Lake has one of the largest and most thriving elementary school gardens in the school system. The garden promotes agricultural literacy, health, nutrition, and environmental stewardship.

Another partner at the school, LifeGate Church, sent a prayer team to Mirror Lake to pray for a safe and successful school year. The church also provided breakfast for Mirror Lake staff on their first day back to school.

Mirror Lake appreciates its wonderful Partners in Education!
