6th Grade Expedition Kick Off-

Students and teachers participated in a variety of activities and protocols on Friday, Nov 2nd to introduce everyone to our 6th grade Expedition, "Rules To Live By". These activities took place throughout our classes and we ended the day with a reveal of what we will be learning about during the 2nd 9 weeks. Some of the activities/ protocols were different than our normal routines to help emphasis and introduce our expedition. Our 6th graders did a great job and enjoyed participating in our activities during CREW and classes.
