Stepping Outside of our Classroom Walls

Last Friday our Middle School classes left campus for a day of experiential learning on the North Shore. The goal of this annual field trip is to provide our students with a growth-filled experience focused on cooperation, leadership, class unity, and fun.

It’s safe to say that our goals were met; however, you don’t have to take my word for it. Below are pictures and a summary of the experience provided by Curriculum Specialist, Shanna Thompson.

On Friday, September 13, the 7th and 8th grade students participated in the 3rd annual trip to YMCA Camp Erdman. Homeroom classes took part in relationship-building high and low ropes activities, swimming, and camp favorites such as archery and gaga ball. Many chose to climb the 55 ft. Alpine Tower, pushing their physical and mental boundaries while being cheered on and supported by their peers and teachers. I always find it so heartening to see students outside of the classroom in nature, having fun and being playful.
