Around the Ridge
It turned out to be a beautiful day up in the mountains for Ms. Stewart's 8th grade science students. It was a challenging year trying to keep the fish alive, but in the end, classes were able to introduce 3 to their natural habitat. What a great opportunity for these students. Special thanks to Mr. Shapcott, Mr. Cline and for her help all year, Ms. Hammond!
