, August 12,
is our first sixth grade expedition.
We are bound for Madera Canyon.
This is a bit further afield than we usually go, but it gives us the chance to be so outdoors and in cooler climes. While at Madera, we will focus on learning a bit about the cultures and histories
of those who have called the region home, in connection with the 6/7 Humanities Early Man unit. We will also learn a bit about the natural history and ecosystems
of the area, as students begin to explore the great biodiversity that makes this region spectacular. And, we will devote some time to team building activities
and games as our young people get to know one another.
It is forecast to be in the high 60s and low 70son Friday, so please make sure your student is dressed appropriately and brings along a couple of layers. Please also make sure your student is wearing comfortable walking shoes and brings a water bottle, lunch, and snacks.
