Students in Mrs. Devlin's class participate in Genius Hour, where they are allowed to explore their own passions and  creativity in the classroom.  Recently, 3 of her students were recognized by the Daily Press and The SVL Breeze Magazine for their contribution to the Hesperia Animal Shelter.  These students made and sold pet toys and raised $338, which was the largest non-sponsored donation the Shelter had been given to date.
