In May, we wanted to get a better idea of what our awesome Mountain House kids are doing at school. More specifically, what are their favorite ways to learn? What aspects of school life made an impression on them this past year? We held a fun contest called See How We Learn to encourage kids to submit photos of them in their favorite school settings, with their favorite teachers, or participating in their favorite classroom activities.
