Watkins Glen and Reasoning!
Background on how we as a team got to this trip:
In years past, we had an 8th grade field trip to Washington D.C., that field trip was 3 days long and in the years before COVID we had the following number of students participate:
2019- 85/223 = 38%
2018- 98/206 = 48%
2017-86/241 = 37%
These numbers included doing major fundraising for two years, scholarship opportunities, and financial support from multiple teachers and the Board. We as team looked at this and decided it truly wasn't a class field trip, a class field trip should be the entire class. We began to look for solutions that would allow us to do that. Last year, we were awarded a grant to send students to a state park. In that grant we received enough money to get nice buses and a personal tour of the state park. We applied again this year and received that grant again and are excited to do this with the 8th grade class.
I can tell you that when the majority of the class went last year the interest was low, but that changed immensely when they came back and shared pictures, laughs, and stories about the day. It was fun because they were all together and that is our WHY for the change.
Note from the Nurses Corner
We have seen an uptick in flu cases this early winter and we are reminding families that if their child does not feel well, they should stay home until symptoms subside. A reminder, we have plenty of PPS in our schools should anyone like a mask, sanitizer, hand washing, etc.
