The third-grade team at El Morro Elementary (EMS) created a RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) Pack Club that meets periodically throughout each month at lunch to perform various acts of kindness. With the help of a grant through the Laguna Greenbelt Foundation, assistance from the LBUSD Facilities team, and LBHS student Rain Duong, the RAK Pack created a butterfly garden this year, which has been a great addition to the campus, spreading joy and encouraging butterflies to flourish on the grounds.
