An experiential, democratic learning community committed to real sustainability in East Austin, where youth ages 5-9 have the freedom to pursue meaningful learning, joy, and connection, guided with love and inspiration by Caitlin Macklin and Laura Ruiz.
It's Friday! We've been waiting patiently all week to take our field trip and Friday finally arrived. We planned a trip to visit Rosedale School and hear the Minor Mishap Marching Band put on a special performance. So this one was super exciting.
Arrived at Rosedale
Visiting Rosedale School was a great opportunity to meet people with special needs and disabilities. When we got to the school, we met with Elizabeth, the principal of Rosedale, who told us a little about the school and the kids who attend there. After a quick Q&A, we had the option to be in the parade. Yes! So we got behind the band and marched/danced with students, teachers, and each other while seeing so many smiling faces in the audience. It truly was a unique experience.

Listening to the music!
Everyone ended up in the cafeteria where the band played a few songs while more people danced around. If you haven't had the chance to see Minor Mishap Marching Band they are a must see. Great musicians and great people.
