Donner Trail Elementary has been hosting the area's Winter Survival Program for more than two decades! The Winter Survival Program is open to all schools within the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District as well as schools and programs outside of the district.
Focusing on basic winter safety skills for children, the content and hands-on stations are tailored to age level participants and promote problem-solving, real life application, and scientific inquiry aligned with grade level Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
Donner Trail is proud to house this important resource for our Tahoe Truckee children and to visiting children in order to keep our young outdoor enthusiasts and athletes safe and prepared!
How is the program aligned with NGSS?
