The Great Trout Release with PBC 5th-Graders

Last week, Pieter B. 5th-graders took a class trip to South Bethlehem Park. Their mission? To release the trout they have been raising for the last 6 months as part of their Trout in the Classroom Unit! Students and staff alike had a great time learning about and experiencing our local natural environment together during the trip - big thank you to all of the RCS and Trout Unlimited Staff for their help!

4th & 5th Graders get swimming for some end of the year fun!

Who doesn't love a little swimming during the school day? This week 4th and 5th graders from PBC and AWB took trips to the RCS Aquatics Center. They learned the pool rules and were introduced to the pool as they will be swimming as part of the PE curriculum starting in 6th grade. Students had a blast! Big thank you to our Elementary PE Teachers for setting up these trips and to all of the staff that helped out!
