John Muir is a small Title 1 K-8 school here in Ashland. Our students are participating in a year long hike-a-thon. The money we raise pays for our art and music education programs, as well as subsidizes our amazing outdoor education programs. Our PTC also provides financial support to teachers' classroom needs and students, both as a group (OBOB teams) and individually (covering fees for struggling families). John Muir students not only play hard but they work hard as well. Our school is continually ranked tops in our district for student academic performance. This Hike-A-Thon highlights our school's commitment to outdoor education, stewardship, leave no trace and community.
