Playground Mural

La Mesa Dale’s beautiful new 192-foot playground mural was painted by Grossmont College Art students under the leadership of Jennifer Bennett, Professor of Drawing and Painting. Over the last semester, Bennett’s art class developed the idea for the mural and spent 4 days on campus during October Break, painting it on our playground wall.

Sage Garden

La Mesa Dale has a beautiful school garden and recently received the Sage Garden Grant.  The grant supports experiential learning that supports learners of all styles and abilities. The goal is to help kids enjoy eating more fruits and vegetables. By developing our hands-on kitchen and garden skills we strive to provide our future generations with opportunities to enjoy more nourishment and less processed food.

To that end, our amazing Garden Teacher, Ms. Aida, has created a series of Garden Lessons that students and families can enjoy - even while we’re in distance learning.  You can access a variety of garden lessons here: La Mesa Dale's Garden Lesson Playlist
