Pine Cove Class Trip

Our 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students went on their first overnight trip of the school year this week. They went to Pine Cove Camp for some wonderful outdoor education. They experienced many great science activities, went orienteering, ziplined, stayed in cabins, and loved the experience in nature!

Our class trips give our students a wonderful opportunity to enjoy learning outside of their classroom with real experiences!
