On Friday, May 13th, nearly 150 4th grade students, from across the district, ascended on the Oakland Mills Park for our Outdoor Day. Knowledgeable volunteers from the community were presenters for the eleven sessions where students learned about foil cooking on a campfire, canoeing, native animals, Iowa trees and fauna, organic gardening and how our food grows, the life cycle of salmon, water witching and cemetery history, the solar system, leaf art, a nature scavenger hunt, and learning about the Nature Center. We had a wonderful day of learning and fun with the help of several parent volunteers to assist each group in finding their next sessions. It was a gorgeous morning and the rain held off until we were back at school. A big “THANK YOU” to all the teachers, paraeducators, parents, presenters, and students for making it a marvelous day!
