Sixth Grade Overnight Trip

Posted on 11:47 am

Continuing the tradition of immersive outdoor experiences for our Middle School students, the 6th grade embarked on their first-ever overnight trip from November 2-3, at the Ashokan Center in New York’s Catskill Mountains. Ashokan is the oldest organization specializing in outdoor environmental education in the state. The students hiked through the woods, explored ponds and streams, and examined the native flora and fauna, applying the content and skills they learned in Science class, specifically the unit on watersheds. Taking advantage of their gorgeous surroundings and the break from city life, students also enjoyed group games, a ropes course, and s’mores around a campfire. See a photo gallery here.
