Students in grades 1, 3, 5, and 6 went on a tubing adventure to Peek’n Peak today. This was the first tubing experience for many of our students. It’s always nice to observe students when they are faced with a task that is outside of their comfort zone.

Second grade took initiative on Wednesday to pick up trash that blew onto campus over the weekend. They filled three bags and even found one of the town banners that hang on the telephone poles which they then returned so it could be rehung. Thank you for showing such leadership!
