This year the 6th grade students were fortunate enough to participate in a four day outdoor school held at the Kiwanis cabins on the Umatilla River. Students participated in field study sessions which involved topics such as; water quality, art, nature photography, outdoor cooking, outdoor first aid, nature photography, weather, forest fires, soil, and fish. They also completed two different hikes, one on the nine mile trail and the other up buck mountain. These sessions were led by volunteers from the surrounding communities as well as teachers from the school district. Parent and community volunteers helped make the week run smoothly. The very first outdoor school week was a huge success and we look forward to many more in the future!
