Winter Exploration
The sixth grade enjoyed a winter exploration field trip to Hillview Park in January. Students took part in snowshoeing, ice fishing, nature hikes, and tubing. We enjoyed lunch from Pizza Ranch and s’mores. The weather was perfect and we had plenty of snow to play in. It was a great day and we feel fortunate to have Victoria DeVos as a resource for our students and our very own Plymouth County outdoor learning center.
Snow Day Makeup
Friday, April 15th will now be a day of school for students and staff. If we have no more snow days, Friday, June 3rd will be the students' last day of school.
