Patrick Henry Elementary School | The League of Learners

The students in Mr. Nathan Erwin's third grade class at Patrick Henry Elementary School are doing a community mapping project - exploring the environment, businesses, history, and culture of the Columbia Pike neighborhood they all live in.

CPDP photographer Lloyd Wolf has led them in workshops, and will be going out to photograph with them as their project moves forward.

Thanks to this lively, bright, and enthusiastic bunch, whom Mr. Erwin has named the "League of Learners."
