Goodbye Orca at Columbia


Orca Mural 26

Today was the last day students will be at Orca at Columbia. Our award-winning student gardens will make way for portable classrooms as our students are relocated to a new school and a different school program moves into Orca's building. I tried to capture the gardens, the murals, and the students celebrating the end of their year (and all the years Orca has been here).

Man, it's heartbreaking seeing that garden and thinking of it going away. Such a symbol of all the years of care and nurturing that have happened at the school.

I love the poem on the plaque it's like a villanelle crossed with a sestina, and the sentiments are quite moving. Did the kids write it?

I'm not sure where the poem came from. I should ask someone who has more institutional memory.
