  • The purpose of Oak Canyon School is to produce highly authentic oral, written and multi-media historical documentation of these locations and share them with the community, Alpine School District elementary schools, and their parents.
  • Because of explosive growth and rapid change, this team wants to investigate the historical facts and inside perspectives now before vivid links to the past are lost and forgotten.
  • This team of "investigators" will be dedicated to uncovering the "great stories" of each of these sites and look for multiple ways of sharing their fi ndings with the community.
  • The students will complete, publish and distribute a book containing insightful stories and personal interviews along with colorful pictures.
  • Hopefully, this project will be of infinite value to the students involved because of the authentic nature of their work.
