He's a rare find!
Mr. Alan Lee (above) is a volunteer in a class by himself, and we're so lucky that he's chosen SBJA as the fruit of his labors. Alan is a
farmer by birth (he has a 100 acre farm in Alabama). He's a
nurse by trade (he's a nurse supervisor at Kaiser Medical Center). He's a
volunteer in his heart.
Several years ago, on his days off, he built our chicken coop, Now he has a new passion:
butterflies. In the photo above you can see the plants he purchased that are known to attract butterflies. Here's a thumbnail sketch of his plans:
- Create a butterfly habitat by planting host plants to attract them.
- Protect certain areas with specific plants for caterpillar growth.
- Provide butterfly pavilions around the campus and in the classrooms for science instruction.
As you can imagine, Alan could use some help. After his presentation at the Parenting Class last Thursday evening, we asked for a show of hands of people willing to
volunteer for this project, and there was a lot of enthusiasm. If you can lend him some time, please call the school office and we'll connect you with this amazing gentleman.
