The fifth graders went on an adventure to the Overland Trail this past Friday. Students and teachers snowshoed a mile into the woods, enjoyed lunch, attempted to create a fire, and then shoed back out. This adventure pushed many students outside of their comfort zones (and maybe some adults as well). The RCS adventure program involves setting up moments for the students to step outside of their comfort zones and then reflect on their accomplishments. This could be on the trail looking back at the hill that was climbed or in the classroom discussing how they overcame something (fear, obstacle, fatigue…). I am so proud of this group of kids! Everyone completed the course and all of the students helped one another the entire way. A big thank you goes out to Mr. Akin for putting this experience together for the children.
